Leadership Amidst Uncertainty

Speaking to Jewish leaders about the challenges they’re facing, the questions they’re asking, and how they are forging a path forward

This week’s guest host, Maital Friedman, spoke with seven of these leaders about the challenges they’re facing, the questions they’re asking, and how they are forging a path forward.
