  1. Orthodox Communities and American Politics | Judaism, Citizenship, and Democracy 2020 Symposium

    Our Orthodox communities are grappling with a version of the polarization that is dividing America. Rather than focusing on what divides us, this conversation will address the shared foundational questions that animate these conflicts: How do we understand the relationship between religion and politics? How should Jews engage in civic life? How can we balance our interests and our values? How do people and communities navigate these questions differently from one another, and why?

    Consider our common beliefs in this panel discussion with Elana Stein Hain, Avi Helfand and Rivka Press Schwartz.

    This panel was offered in partnership with Congregation Beth Sholom, Stanton Street Shul, Congregation Ramath Orah, West Side Institutional Synagogue, Hebrew Institute of Riverdale, Hudson Yards Synagogue, The Prospect Heights Shul, The Riverdale Minyan, The Downtown Minyan, Kehilath Jeshurun, and The Jewish Center.

  2. The four-letter code to selling anything | Derek Thompson | TEDxBinghamtonUniversity

    Why do we like what we like? Raymond Loewy, the father of industrial design, had a theory. He was the all-star 20th-century designer of the Coca-Cola fountain and Lucky Strike pack; the modern sports car, locomotive, Greyhound bus and tractor; the interior of the first NASA spaceship; and the egg-shaped pencil sharpener. How did one man understand what consumers wanted from so many different areas of life? His grand theory of popularity was called MAYA: Most advanced yet acceptable. He said humans are torn between two opposing forces: neophilia, a love of new things; and neophobia; a fear of anything that’s too new. Hits, he said, live at the perfect intersection of novelty and familiarity. They are familiar surprises. In this talk, I’ll explain how Loewy’s theory has been validated by hundreds of years of research — and how we can all use it to make hits. Derek Thompson is a senior editor at The Atlantic, where he writes about economics, technology and media. He is a news analyst with NPR’s afternoon show “Here and Now," appearing weekly on Mondays, and an on-air contributor to CBS News. The recipient of several honors, including the 2016 Best in Business award for Columns and Commentary from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, he is the author of the national bestselling book Hit…
