Does Consensus Still Count?

By Douglas Kahn

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2003

The author discusses consensus as a decision-making formula in the Jewish communal system and describes an instance of its success. The fact that obtaining consensus has become more challenging, he argues, makes it more important than ever to try. He concludes that our effectiveness as advocates on key issues of importance to our community depends on it.
