Serving on a congregation's Board of Trustees and helping to govern the synagogue provides an opportunity to contribute one's skills, experience and knowledge to benefit the synagogue and the Jewish community that it serves. Board Workshop Specialist Lisa Adler assists Synagogue Boards by offering facilitated day-long seminars and consultations that strengthen congregational boards in their role of building a Jewish community.
Depending on the congregation's needs, a board workshop can focus on specific key issues, that include but are not limited to, rabbinic transition; crafting mission statements; long-range planning; leadership development; or clarifying board roles and responsibilities. Additionally, specially designed programs are available to suit your congregation's individual needs.
