Jewish Social Entrepreneurship and its Discontents

By Sidney Schwarz

Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA), December 30, 2009

The author applauds initiatives to foster innovation in the Jewish communal world, but cautions that the encouragement of new organizations must be balanced with support for organizations that have worked hard and have a proven track record. He offers and discusses three critical yardsticks for assessing the viability of new organizations: impact, sustainability, and succession.
