Unbound launched last year, and his hosted by Dan Libenson and Lex Rofes. It’s produced by the Institute for the Next Jewish Future, and has over 12,000 monthly listeners.
Bodner said on the podcast that there are five main factors changing the Jewish world at the moment:
1. The shift away from institutional affiliation
3. Ethnographic changes
4. New forms of meaning and belongin
5. The simultaneous existence of a Jewish state and a “strong” diaspora
Also on the podcast Bodner talks about how he believes that to some extent Orthodox Jews have “cornered the market” on public displays of Judaism. For non-Orthodox Jews, Bodner discussed how best to re-imagine Jewish rituals or create new practices — or some combination of both.
Being in Silicon Valley, Bodner said, offers different challenges and opportunities than elsewhere in the country.
