Withdrawal Empowers Community

By Darren Levine

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, January 2010

This piece looks at the paradox of tzimtzum (contraction or letting go) as it relates to the process of creation. The author uses his experience at the Jewish Community Project (JCP) to explain how the community leaders could work in the tzimtzum model and what can be expected from such leadership. The piece concludes by asking questions about the possibilities of expanding social and intellectual experiences among other things through the articulation of the understanding of tzimtzum and its dynamism.
