Jewish Community / Jewish Organizations

“…if the theme of sorts for Jewish organizational life over the past 10-12 years was “innovation”, the next big theme should be “mergers and acquisition”

I strongly believe that, if the theme of sorts for Jewish organizational life over the past 10-12 years was “innovation”, the next big theme should be “mergers and acquisition.”

…I hope that the folks with the influence (and affluence) to guide these process will do so with foresight. The alternative – bigger organizations kneecapped by the nimbleness of the innovation sector, but the innovation sector withering without the real resources to become as stable as they need to be in order for their interventions to be influential – will happen slowly and painfully to the detriment of the whole field.
