Gale, co-director of the Diller Teen Fellows asks, What will be the future of the Jewish People? Having worked so hard to create communities that support different ways of Jewish life, Jewish leaders are reluctant to engage in dialogue. “The ability to engage in dialogue and respond to each other sympathetically and empathetically is critical to ensuring the future of a united People. Dialogue does not ask that anyone forgo their identity or of belief, but rather, it should be used to strengthen the community at-large. Gale highlights how a particular educational opportunity can be used as a collective Jewish journey to explore and expose young people “to the diversity of Jewish expression and experience which is today’s reality… If this approach is successful, the next generation of Jewish leaders may break down today’s barriers and help redefine a Jewish People strengthened by diversity.”
