The gift of this brain trust (and "heart trust") has been extraordinary for me. I recommend Selah for anyone who is prepared to challenge all of his assumptions, take ownership of and responsibility for her personal and professional power, and commit fully to relationships with some of the finest human beings in the community -- Jewish or any other. The thoughtful encouragement (and honest nudging) of my cohort peers gave me the push I needed to co-found Jumpstart. Without Selah, I wouldn't be where -- or who -- I am today.
