Board and Leadership Summer School

Governance and LeadershipAs many synagogues take a break from "regularly scheduled programming" over the summer, consider this an excellent opportunity for congregational leaders or soon-to-be-leaders to read up on successful governance strategies.

Of course the URJ has many publications and programs to help leaders, but did you know we also have Governance & Leadership Development Specialists who stand ready, willing and able to assist URJ congregations?

  • Lisa Adler, Governance & Leadership Development Specialist,
  • Judith Erger, Governance, Leadership Development and Architecture Specialist, and
  • Debbie Joseph, Governance, Leadership Development and Strategic Planning Specialist,

are all available to discuss your leadership questions. (A cadre of specialist in other areas of import to congregational leaders can be found on the URJ's Ask a Specialist page. You may also wish to contact your Congregational Representative.)

Additionally, we suggest reading through the URJ's many publications aimed at helping leaders with the awesome responsibility of managing the sacred. Some of the most popular publications include:

Visit the URJ's Governance and Leadership Development Publication web page for a complete list of downloadable publications.

Moreover, the URJ offers opportunities for congregational leaders to learn from and with each other. Consider joining a networking group or subscribing to a listserv so you can interact with leaders throughout North America.

Finally, as more and more information is housed and found online, we encourage leaders to look at this overview about navigating the URJ website. The article will help you quickly find the online resources you need!
