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 “50 American Jews, 10 conversations,” 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 first conversation with Halie Soifer of the Jewish Democratic Council of America; Caroline Dorn of @rogueshul; James Bennet, former Opinion Editor of The New York Times; and Rabbi Susan Talve, founding rabbi of Central Reform Congregation.
