Lessons from the Pandemic
Every challenge for the flagship Jewish university is an opportunity to grow and change. There are many ideas we have learned as individuals and as a community from this past year – new modes of education, new models of communications and new applications for our values.
We don’t ask why we were given challenges we ask how can we respond and what have we learned. That is what this site is about: a repository of the lessons learned in teachable moments that will continue to guide us for the rest of our lives.
We invite you to reflect and share with us ideas, resources and inspiration to help shape our collective growth.
Our values, both deeply rooted in our timeless tradition and forward focused on building the world of tomorrow, guide our response in these challenging times.
