JDOV Talk: Skin in the Game

To preserve the integrity of the Jewish spiritual tradition, Micha Odenheimer wants to create a new kind of globalization

Micha Odenheimer, Executive Director of Tevel b’Tzedek, believes passionately that we are at a crossroads in human life, in which all of humanity is being connected and integrated into a single economic and environmental system. Though facing deep challenges, Jews are no longer a pariah people, but are situated economically and culturally in the mainstream of globalization, with the capacity, right and responsibility to influence the course our world will take, what it will mean to be a human being. Because of the urgency of the hour and the nature of Judaism’s message, preserving the integrity of the Jewish spiritual tradition means being actively involved in creating a new kind of globalization, driven not by the marketplace but by a vision for human good.
