  • The Next Normal - Tresa Grauer
  • For those who were interested in the Kaplan quote from the call, it was from his definition of community, which is “that form of social organization in which the welfare of each is the concern of all, and the life of the whole is the concern of each.” This quote comes from his 1948 book, The Future of the American Jew. If you want to explore more quotes by Kaplan, we suggest you take a look at The Kaplan Listening Center.
