It's deja vu all over again!
Another article complaining about birthright follow-up, this time from Haviv Retteg Gur in the Jerusalem Post and a riposte from Rabbi Daniel Brenner explaining that there is follow-up. Daniel is quite right--there is follow-up. I think we all understand that it's just not enough.
This tired boxing match can come to a happy end when the simple request that many of us having been making for nearly a decade is met: share the lists of participants with organizations out there in the Jewish community that you trust to follow-up in a meaningful way with birthright participants.
Or, have the courage of your convictions to put in writing why you won't share those lists with say, me and my synagogue. Now THAT would be fun reading!
But in the meantime, this recycled old tale is a snoozer.
Have a nice day!
