The beauty of a revolution is that what is inconceivable one day suddenly becomes commonplace.  Rabbi Riskin has fomented a revolution in Judaism by redefining how we teach, counsel, and speak; how we strive toward tikkun olam and outreach to each and every Jew; how individuals can reach consistently higher than their grasp; and above all – how to dream with vision and clarity.

The Jewish world is so much richer for Rabbi Riskin’s efforts, and we are profoundly grateful.
