During Chanukah, the Roundtable asked people to join us for a communal conversation on social media using #JewishPurpose. We wanted to bring together people who are engaged in Jewish life, people who are occasional participants, and people who watch from the sidelines. We wanted those who are social justice activists and those who are quiet sympathizers; those who bemoan the state of the world and haven’t figured out what to do about it; those who work in the community and those who don’t; and we definitely wanted and need people of every generation.
