In her book “Leadership and the New Science,” Margaret J. Wheatley, a prominent management consultant, wrote, “Innovation is fostered by information gathered from new connections; from insights gained by journeys into other disciplines or places; from active, collegial networks and fluid, open boundaries.” Innovation, as such, is on the minds of many leaders in the fields of technology, government and business. But rarely is it spoken about in a religious, community-oriented context. That view is rapidly changing, particularly in our special Phoenix Jewish community. 

In the last several weeks, the local community celebrated the launch of Ladles of Love, an initiative brought to life by Nicki Kaplan. The goal of the program is a noble one: bringing in volunteers to prepare and deliver nutritious, kosher meals to the sick and elderly. This wonderful program, still early in its lifecycle, is destined to be a staple of the community for years to come.
