The Wexner Foundation convened a conference call yesterday, October 9, to discuss implications of the recent Pew Study for Jewish leaders. The call was chaired by The Wexner Foundation President, Rabbi B. Elka Abrahamson, and featured Dr. Sarah Bunin Benor (WGFA, Class 11) and sociologist Dr. Steven M. Cohen, who were all members of the Advisory Panel for the Pew Trust. Close to 200 Wexner members, fellows, and alumni participated. 

Several questions were asked and answered and we encourage the conversation to continue here on this blog – please post your comments below.

There were also several groups of people, such as Denver and Columbus leaders, who clustered together to hear the call and then further discuss its local implications.
