Imagine having the entire Jewish people over for dinner—and hosting a raucous, creative, riveting debate about their collective future.Jewish Prioritiesoffers, for the first time, a wide–ranging, ambitious, and genuinely “pan–Jewish” conversation. Encompassing more than sixty top authors from around the Jewish world—Israelis and Diaspora writers; younger influencers and veteran opinion leaders; rabbinic and communal leaders, journalists and scholars, and literary and cultural figures, ranging from secularto ultra–Orthodox—each contributor offers a different priority for the Jewish people. In the process,Jewish Prioritiescaptures the tremendous breadth, depth, and passionate commitment that has long defined this unique community in history.
These essaysare all original and come from some of our greatest luminaries—thought leaders like Natan Sharansky, Dara Horn, Yossi Klein Halevi, Ruth Wisse, Shaul Magid, David Wolpe, Fania Oz–Salzberger, and many more. Their topics vary widely, from Zionism and antisemitism to education and philanthropy; from the Holocaust to Jewish intimacy; from the quest for God to the failure of Jewish institutions, to the best way to study the Torah in an age of viral videos.
Jewish Prioritiesoffers an unprecedented snapshot ofthe cultural, political, and religious currents driving an entire generation of Jews—but also the deepest aspirations and dreams of this beautiful, unique people at a pivotal moment in our history.
