Event Details

The URJ Scheidt Seminar 

Registration is now closed for the URJ Scheidt Seminar - April 2017.

Funded through the generosity of Rudi and Honey Scheidt, the annual URJ Scheidt Seminar for Presidents and Presidents-Elect convenes congregational presidents to learn, network, build relationships, and enhance leadership skills. It serves as a springboard for learning throughout presidents' terms.

To accommodate growing interest and to serve more congregations, in 2017 we will be offering two opportunities to attend the Scheidt Seminar: The second seminar will take place on April 20-23, 2017 at the Crowne Plaza in Peachtree City, GA (near Atlanta). An earlier seminar was offered in February in San Diego, CA. 

  • The cost of attending the URJ Scheidt Seminar (includes registration, accommodations, food and materials):
    • $985 for single occupancy
    • $800 for double occupancy
  • To encourage more congregations to attend the URJ Scheidt Seminar, this year we will be offering a $250 grant to presidents and presidents-elect from congregations of any size that have not sent participants to the URJ Scheidt Seminar in or since 2010.
  • Presidents from small congregations (250 member units and under) will also be eligible for Small Congregations grants of up to $400. After registering, you will receive a link to apply for the grant. For any questions, contact MKalish@urj.org.
Agenda and Logistics

Pricing and agenda will be the same in both locations, with Rabbi Rick Jacobs, Rabbi Aaron Panken, Amy Asin, Miriam Chilton, Rabbi Sam Joseph and Rabbi Lou Feldstein serving as faculty in both seminars. 

An individual can attend the seminar only once. Congregational presidents should choose the date that works best for them for the opportunity to learn, network and worship with participants from congregations of different locations and sizes.
