In recent years a narrative has developed that "innovation" in the Jewish community is the exclusive purview of the "young" and of those who exist "outside" the walls of the established Jewish or even nonprofit world. This theme goes through nearly all the articles in the Journal. I heartily disagree with it and would like to devote this article to the reasons for my disagreement. I believe creativity knows no age or boundaries. There are creative and innovative people who are old, middle-aged, and young. To believe that only the young or the outsider can be innovative and creative flies in the face of reality.
