Had'rachah Seminar for Lay Leadership in Ritual Life

In 1989 the URJ created the first program that offers uniform training to lay leaders, primarily those in small congregations, to help them support the spiritual life of their congregations. Over the years, this effort has expanded to meet the changing needs of all our congregations. 

The Had’rachah Seminar (formerly the Sh'liach K'hilah/Synagogue Associate Program) teaches lay leaders a variety of skills to help them support communal worship, lifecycle events and educational opportunities. Participants in the Had’rachah Seminar may use these skills in various ways—by serving a congregation that has no clergy; by working in an assisted living facility or adult community; or by assisting their congregational clergy.
