The Fingerprints of God: The Community, the Federation, and the Networks That Bind Us Together

By Barry Shrage

Susan and David Wilstein Institute of Jewish Policy Studies (University of Judaism), 2001

The CEO of the Combined Jewish Philanthropies in Boston describes their new strategic plan, which is based on the premise that our Jewish people can most helpfully be viewed as an interconnected network of people, communities, ideas, values, culture and knowledge. It is a miraculous network; spanning the entire planet and linking generations across time, as well as human communities across vast geographical distances. Moreover, it is an open network that absorbs ideas, values and culture from the world and shares them again with the world, transformed through contact with Jewish consciousness and experience. The network has practical implications (it has provided the basis for our Jewish identity and Jewish commitment for 3500 years) and also provides a key to our unique Jewish spiritual heritage.
