By Steven Windmueller

The author states that consensus as a decision-making formula has served the Jewish communal system throughout much of the 20th century. He discusses the factors that are moving the communal enterprise away from the traditional "consensus" model. He acknowledges the value of consensus as a core principle of community-building, providing a framework for collective engagement.
