Learning and Leadership

His lightly-worn learning, easy manner, self-deprecating humor, scarcely mask his profound—and nearly unique—identification with both Jewish and American history, in all their richness, tragedy, reach and longing. He has thought about both of them long and hard, and in ways that few, if any, others have….David’s activities are of a piece with this passion, as Me’ah has democratized Jewish study precisely through the demanding study of texts.

[David] has a brilliant mind; he is a scholar of great range and depth; he is a deeply devoted father and husband; his outstanding abilities at organization are manifest in the splendid Me'ah Program he created and fostered; he is a forceful and moving orator; he is a man of both compassion and commitment; he is a teacher who fortifies and inspires; he is a natural leader; and his contribution to the Jewish community is legendary.
