This event was recorded and is available to subscribers of the Forward.
Every year we publish the Forward 50, a list of remarkable people who have had a particular impact on our communities. This year, we’re asking them to join our Editor-in-Chief, Jodi Rudoren, for a weekly series of Zoominars about … whatever is on their minds. The list is a mix of activists and actors, rabbis and rappers, writers and readers, leaders and legends. Each week we’ll gather a random few and see where we end up.
Watch the next conversation with Ellie Klein Goldman, executive director at Temple Shalom in Newton, MA and co-creator of RogueShul parody Twitter account; Jacob Jonas, choreographer and founder of Jacob Jonas The Company; Christa Whitney, director of the Yiddish Book Center’s Wexler Oral History Project; and Ariel Zwang, the first woman to head the Joint Distribution Committee.
