Jewish Professional as Colleague

By Larry Moses

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Winter 2010

It pleases me to share reflections on the theme "Jewish professional as colleague," drawing from the special qualities embodied by John Ruskay. Wishing to be fully transparent, I informed the guest editors of this issue that I would write such a piece only if it could be more personal than scholarly in tone. Be forewarned. John Ruskay and I are colleagues. I find these six words to be affirming, even ennobling. We share a friendship, a history, and a set of professional commitments that are interwoven and difficult to parcel out. Like others of our generation who entered professional careers in Jewish communal life, we embraced Jewish activism as products of the sixties - a tumultuous decade filled with angst, idealism, rebellion, and the winds of change.
