Sanctuary - Economic Crisis and a Diverse Jewish World


This episode of the public-affairs program “Sanctuary” explores two distinct but challenging topics: Getting help to those hurt worst by the economic crisis, and navigating personal identity in a diverse Jewish world.

First, David Sherman, the new Chairman of the Board of the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, outlines how JUF’s latest initiative, J-Help: A Boost in Tough Times, is responding to the rapidly escalating need for services that has been triggered by the financial downturn.

Then, two rabbis whose lives and careers straddle widely different parts of the Jewish world describe how they handle their communal roles while maintaining their own personal backgrounds and beliefs.
