Civil Discourse: Our Jewish Roots, Our Jewish Future


We don’t always agree with each other, but as Jews we have a centuries old tradition of civil discourse and respectful disagreement, in large part because at the end of the day we are all family. But these days it seems increasing difficult to tap into that when it comes to sensitive topics that are close to our hearts. It isn’t just the Jewish community either; all over the world one can see examples of how civil discourse just isn’t all that civil anymore.


As vice-president of The Wexner Foundation, Rabbi Moses is helping shape Jewish leaders at an elite, global level. This is something they talk about it, and we’re going to delve into it at FEDtalks.


The Wexner Foundation focuses on the development of Jewish professional and volunteer leaders in North America and public leaders in Israel. “Wexner has been consistently succeeding in identifying the best and the brightest in every community, and dramatically enriching the way in which those leaders perceive their responsibilities and opportunities.” - Andrés Spokoiny, eJewish Philanthropy


Before becoming vice president of The Wexner Foundation, Rabbi Moses served for many years as director of the Wexner Heritage Program, North America’s premier Jewish leadership education program. He pursued rabbinical studies at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, and was awarded a Wexner Graduate Fellowship.
