Leadership: Preservation or Innovation?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is the goal of leadership? Should leaders aim to preserve the traditions of old? Or perhaps the task of leaders is to forge a new path through uncharted territory? We will refract this question through the lens of the Talmudic passage describing the deposition of Rabban Gamliel from his position at the head of the academy in Yavneh.
