Judaism & Power

Great Conversations with Erica Brown:  The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington's Jewish Leadership Institute is sponsoring a series of lunchtime conversations with Dr Erica Brown.

Dr Brown is a writer and educator who works as the Scholar-in-Residence for The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and consults for the Jewish Agency and other Jewish non-profits. Erica is the author of the books “Inspired Jewish Leadership,” a National Jewish Book Award finalist, and “Spiritual Boredom.” She also coauthored “The Case for Jewish Peoplehood” (all through Jewish Lights). Her most recent book is “Confronting Scandal.” Dr Brown also publishes the blog Weekly Jewish Wisdom.

The DC Federation website says
What does Judaism say about the great themes of life and literature? Take a break from the office to think big thoughts with good company. Bring your lunch and your ideas for a great conversation about what matters to you!
But the key marketing technique is this "video", created via a wonderful web tool at  Enjoy!

Why does Abq Jew bring this up?  Two reasons:
  1. Erica Brown is one of the foremost speakers in the field of Jewish Ethics today.  If you have the opportunity to hear her - go!  
  2. We've got talent and pizazz right here in the Duke City.  Abq Jew wants to do this, too!
