Members of the Jewish community hold a wide spectrum of beliefs, and in the aftermath of the recent elections in Israel, our sense of communal identity is being tested. We are left to wonder if anyone has the right – or the responsibility – to speak on behalf of us all. The evening featured a discussion between Yehuda Kurtzer , President of the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America and Jeremy Burton , Executive Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston.
