Personal Models for Jewish Leadership

By David Ellenson

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2006

In this column, part of the Sigi Ziering series on the ethics of leadership, the author offers biographies and analyses of two Jewish leaders that have inspired him, Rabbi Nehemiah Nobel and Rabbi Leo Baeck. He concludes that Jewish religious leadership is not an isolated individual quest; rather, the soul of the rabbi must be bound fully and completely to the people and its traditions.
