This spring, we'll celebrate our 10th anniversary with a brilliant group of Jewish thinkers, journalists, leaders, and—I hope—you. Almost half the tickets are already claimed, and we expect another sell out, so register now for a scintillating day of Jewish conversation and deep ideas. You'll have a great time and support an absolutely unique Jewish publication.
