Teacher

Dr. Jack Wertheimer

Dr. Jack Wertheimer is the author of two recent studies about the transformation of Jewish philanthropy in the U.S. His lecture will address several questions: What are the sources of money and influence, and how do they differ today as compared to the last century? With the relationships between grant-makers and grantees increasingly central, why do the two talk past each other at times? And what can be done when the unequal balance of power between the two leads to harmful interactions?
