At The Community Synagogue in Port Washington, N.Y., we try to create a culture that encourages and fosters innovation and an innovative spirit in the work that we do, a result of support and cooperation between both professionals and the lay leadership (hence this article coming from both of us). The UJA Federation of New York’s Synergy Salon series brought together synagogue lay and professional leaders to engage in conversations about cutting-edge issues in Jewish life, triggered by listening to the Judaism Unbound podcast.
