Dan Smokler: Reinventing the Old for an Innovative Future

Episode 39 of What Gives? the Jewish philanthropy podcast from Jewish Funders Network.

Daniel Smokler, Chief Innovation Officer of the Office of Innovation, talks to JFN President and CEO Andres Spokoiny about how the philosophy of l'chadaysh et ha'yashan, renewing the old, informs his practice of innovation, how his family history of philanthropy influences his own journey, the changes in rabbinical leadership, and the delayed awakening that could come out of the COVID-19 pandemic.
