How do we equip talented communicators with the Torah that they crave to be effective, competent, and confident Jewish educators in our communities? Stephanie Goldfarb reflects on her experience as a “cultural Jew,” and how her employer invested in her to bridge the gap between her innate talented communication skills and the substantive Torah learning she was missing to be the leader she wanted to be.
