Leadership with a Message of Agency

Elana Stein Hain and Mark Gerson discuss the differing models of leadership demonstrated in Jeremiah 28, and how they are evident in America today.

Elana Stein Hain joins Mark Gerson on The Rabbi’s Husband, where she discusses legal loopholes in rabbinic law, exploring examples of both the letter and spirit of the law, and then summarizing Jeremiah 28 and its significance for her. They discuss the differing models of leadership within the passage and how these models are evident in America today, the complexities and demands of religion, the tendency among some to gravitate toward ‘cheap grace,’ and the difference between the prophetic and the rabbinic.
