When I was younger, I used to look forward to its arrival. I would straighten out the pages and perch on the couch like the adults I saw on television, immersing myself in the cultural happenings of my local Jewish community.

Provocatively titled “Why Be Jewish?” this year’s conference focused on the state of pluralism in the Jewish community.
