ELI Talk on Jewish Leadership

ELI Talk on Jewish Leadership


Spertus Institute is pleased and proud to share an ELI talk by then Spertus President and CEO Dr. Hal M. Lewis

What is an ELI talk, you might ask? ELI talks are TED-inspired 12-minute presentations about Jewish ideas. Speakers are invited to present based on their own work, passions, and experiences, resulting in talks that inevitably teach something new.

This talk is one of a series filmed in Chicago in front of a live audience, co-sponsored by the JUF/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago.

ELI talks are produced by the AVI CHAI Foundation. They are intended to be shared and discussed. In that spirit, we welcome your comments and encourage you to share this talk with your friends and colleagues.
