American scholar to lecture on lack of Jewish vision

Washington DC scholar-in-residence discusses the decline of Jewish leadership ahead of Great Synagogue lecture.

Jewish leadership is in a state of crisis, warns Dr. Erica Brown in her new book, In the Narrow Times, a collection of essays that recently hit the book stands.
The Jewish intellectual and author, who has won the praise of journalists David Brooks of The New York Times and Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic, believes that the people who gave you Moses, Theodor Herzl and David Ben-Gurion just don’t make them the way they used to.
