Last week's JC front page was most disturbing. We are an active community, with excellent organisations and vibrant Jewish life; yet we prompted the headline, What a State. Are we in a state? The biggest disconnect is between our grass roots of caring, committed Jews and our leadership. We have so many excellent, dedicated people - our major funders, our activists, our Rabbis, our teachers, our professionals - yet it is so difficult for them to work together and progress in the same direction. But it is vital and necessary.
