I spoke at Limmud UK in December 2013. My class focused on the legacy and critical importance of societal innovation for the Jewish world and for Israel.
The first part of this presentation focuses on the mechanisms that allow for the evolution of the Jewish People while balancing between flexibility and rigidity in key areas of Jewish society such as mission, law, membership, language, place or structure. The latter part focuses on the challenges facing Zionism and Israel to continue the legacy of the Flexigidity of the Jewish People. The middle section of the presentation explains how the approach and methodology of the Reut Institute is designed to support the Flexigidity of the Jewish People and Israel.
