Had'rachah Seminar for Lay Leadership in Ritual Life
Thank you for your interest in the Had'rachah Seminar for Lay Leadership in Ritual Life. The next seminar is scheduled for Wednesday, July 30 - Sunday,
August 3, 2014 at URJ Olin Sang Ruby Camp in Oconomowoc, WI. Registration and more information will be available here in the spring and also will be
featured on the Small Congregations website.
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
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 Hadrachah Seminar may use
these skills in various waysby serving a congregation that has no
clergy; by working in an assisted living facility or adult community;
or by assisting their congregational clergy.
