A conversation with Barry Shrage, with an introduction by Rabbi Emeritus Lewis Mintz

Barry Shrage is the inaugural speaker in the Rabbi Lewis Mintz Fund series and is Professor of the Practice in the Hornstein Jewish Professional Leadership Program at Brandeis University. 

One of America's foremost Jewish leaders, Shrage served for the past 30 years as president of Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) of Greater Boston and as a powerful voice on the American Jewish communal scene. He is known in Boston and throughout the world for his tireless support of Jewish education; his promotion of engagement by religious and nonreligious Jews; his commitment to working for social justice at home and abroad alongside others; his strong support of Israel; his bridge-building, outreach, and engagement with the non-Jewish community in creative partnerships; and for his boundless energy and creativity.

After retiring from CJP in 2018, Shrage joined the Hornstein Program at Brandeis, where he trains and mentors students in their future roles as Jewish professional leaders. He is also working closely with the Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies, where he is developing and leading a new initiative on Jewish identity.
