District Councils

We are pleased to announce that July, 2010 marks the official launch of the Union’s four District Councils. During this past year the Union’s leadership has worked diligently to align geographically the fourteen regional councils with the already successful four congregational support centers (East, South, Central and West).

The district councils are committed to working in sacred partnership with the Union’s North American leadership and professional staff to support and strengthen both Reform Jewish congregations and the greater Reform Movement. District council leadership will work in partnership with the district leadership manager, who serves as the district council’s staff adviser.

Though sharing common goals, each district council will have the opportunity to focus on district specific issues and create a district leadership structure and culture, reflective of its congregational and geographic make-up.

Each district council strives to:

  • Promote the aims, purposes, welfare and needs of member congregations
  • Provide resources, ideas and programs to assist congregations in building capacity
  • Be inclusive of the diverse needs in each district while building community among the lay leaders and congregations of the district
  • Promote the mission, vision, goals and programs of the Union
  • Enhance the relationship between member congregations and the URJ
  • Identify and cultivate new lay leadership both for the districts and Union board
  • Elect district representatives to the Union’s board of trustees.
