Professor Jack Wertheimer’s recent report on Jewish leaders in their 20s and 30s (see “Exploring the Generation Gap Among Jewish Leaders”) is a critical step forward to understanding the fundamental shifts in perspective of a new generation.

Rouse speaks to Jewish leaders

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- President Obama's new chief of staff reached out to Jewish leaders.

Some leaders complained Monday to JTA that the call held little substance; the only two Jewish speakers were from Chicago and are admirers of Obama.

Rouse established close relations with Jewish leaders when he was chief of staff to former Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), the majority leader from 2001 to 2003.
