JPR Executive Director, Jonathan Boyd, delivered a two-part seminar on Jewish peoplehood this week, as part of the Nahum Goldmann Fellowship programme, one of the world’s top international Jewish leadership training initiatives.
The Fellowship brings together forty emerging leaders, aged between 25 and 40, from around the world, to participate in a retreat which exposes them to high levels of Jewish textual learning through lectures and workshops. Faculty from around the world, who represent the broadest range of Jewish life and practice, act as teachers and mentors, both during and after the programme.
The conference took place in Israel, and was attended by Fellows from seventeen different countries, including representatives of several very small Jewish communities such as India, Croatia, Romania, Colombia and Panama. The faculty included Professor Saul Berman (Adjunct Professor at Columbia University School of Law), Professor Steven Windmueller (Professor of Communal Service at Hebrew Union College, USA), Professor Moti Zeira (Founder and CEO of Midrasha at Oranim in Israel), and Professor Eric Goldman (Adjunct professor of cinema at Yeshiva University in New York).
