It was an honor and a privilege to host Rabbi Dr. Ari Berman this evening as part of our Kohelet Yeshiva Beit Midrash and to engage him in a public conversation about where our community is headed. Over the course of an hour we touched on issues ranging from the relationship between the Modern Orthodox community in the United States and the Dati Leumi community in Israel, the usefulness - or lack thereof - of the term "Modern Orthodoxy," the potential for schism in the American Modern Orthodox community, the future of higher education, and the need to inspire young men and women to enter the field of Jewish education.
