Consider these 6 questions:
- What does it mean to be Jewish in the Jewish State? Is Israel a Jewish State or a State of Jews?
- What would you suggest to the Reform movement in Israel to help overcome some of its challenges?
- Should religion and state be separated in Israel similar to the Jeffersonian model set up in the United States?
- In which elements of religious life should the government have a role?
- Is Judaism compatible with democracy?
- What is more important – obtaining full recognition by the Israeli government for the Reform movement or a complete separation of religion and state where the government does not recognize any religious movements.

Every day, there are people around the world who aren’t safe and need help getting out of their country to safety. There are people who live where they live because of violence, gangs, and drugs. There are people who want to find a better life for themselves.
Speaking at NFTY Convention 2017 was an amazing experience. Looking out into the crowd and seeing all those faces caused me to step back and really appreciate this movement, where we invest so much of our time. It was the honor of a lifetime to be able to share my words with the community that I call home.
