Leadership: The Jewish Take
What are the characteristics of a good leader?
- Have the proven ability to see beyond their own agenda, and their own time?
- Empower others and identify future leaders with a similar commitment to serving?
As we contemplate our choices in this and subsequent elections--indeed, as we consider the leadership of our communal institutions, congregations, and businesses--Judaism challenges us to answer these questions, and to keep in mind that how a person leads is at least as much a “Jewish issue” as the policies he or she espouses.
