WHIM (What Inspires Me) is a weekly post by Cathy Gardner, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton. Each week Cathy will discuss current events, important news stories and all things related to Jewish Federations and the Dayton Jewish community.
It’s hard to believe we are already halfway through the month of January. Some people are still working on their new year’s resolutions. Many of us, however, have already settled back into our old routines, and the dreams of working out every day, eating better, or getting up earlier are already distant memories. We might even feel a sense of disappointment or defeat against that one thing we were going to tackle in 2018, but seemingly failed to accomplish.
This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of speaking at Temple Israel’s Dorothee & Lewis Ryterband Lecture Series. Howie Beigelman, Executive Director of Ohio Jewish Communities, joined me as we discussed anti-Semitism in today’s world.
