Ed Horwich, creator of the JSCN network, and Samuel Richardson are collaborating to create JSCN USA.
Sam is well known in America for his academic work on Small Jewish Communities in the States. Asked how he got into area of study he replies “I woke up one day and wondered what were the chances that my future grandchildren would still be Jewish. What could I do to increase the possibility that they would be?”
Certainly “small communities” have a different definition by size in America. They are larger, but as a proportion of the total Jewish population they are a much smaller percentage than in the UK.
However they have a lot to share in how they combat challenges, how they bridge the gaps, support one another and build resilience.
