Tomorrow, the Convent Foundation, one of this country’s preeminent supporters of Jewish education initiatives, will celebrate their 18th anniversary with a conference at the UJA-Federation of New York. The event’s overarching themes are described as “Dissolving Boundaries” and “Seizing the Future: Promoting Jewish Learning, Community Building and Civic Engagement.” I will be joining a panel on the latter subject.
