Matterness: Aligning Jewish Organizations with Jewish Values

Do you sometimes feel like just a number in the eyes of large institutions? Allison Fine believes that there is no reason for this feeling should extend into institutions in the Jewish community; if anything, Jewish community should be a sanctuary of individuality. Using Torah, Fine examines the value of the individual, and argues that by taking risks, Jewish institutions can subvert the problem of feeling like “just a number” in order to create communities in which each person feels deeply important.
