Rabbi Rick Jacobs: Liberal Zionism’s Influential and Inspiring Leader
I don’t claim to be unbiased; I think URJ President Rabbi Rick Jacobs is an influential and inspiring leader.
What’s more, he is a thought leader and change agent – an agitator, if you will, – when it comes to Progressive Judaism in Israel, as well as in congregations throughout the United States and Canada, and, increasingly, in locales beyond the walls of synagogues, in places where Jews, especially millennial Jews, congregate and live their lives.
I could go on, but I’d rather you read this newly published profile of Rabbi Rick Jacobs that appears in the current online edition of New York Magazine. It powerfully captures the work of the Reform Jewish Movement in North America (and around the progressive agenda in Israel) and the remarkable leader who is making it all happen. Yasher koach, Rick!
