[ed:  thanks to Richard for the comments on Julie and Lee's paper.]

From: Richard L Wood <rlwood at>


I've read this paper already, think it's an excellent look at the 
Jewish experience of community organizing under the recent 
evolution of that model. Really worth a read, for its challenge both 
to the organizing world to better understand synagogues and to the 
Jewish community to recommit itself to concrete work for justice in 
American life. Richard Wood, University of New Mexico
