Bruchim Habaim (welcome) to the Audacious Hospitality Pilot Toolkit!
The Audacious Hospitality Pilot Toolkit is an effort to support congregational and Jewish communal leaders - clergy, staff, lay leaders, members of the congregation, and community members at-large throughout North America - as we work to embrace the diversity that is the reality of modern Jewish life.
Throughout the Toolkit, we provide best principles and practical resources to help you create inclusive communities grounded in meaning, understanding, and connection. That said, there is no “one size fits all” resource for any one community. Each congregation, community, and group will have its own set of needs and challenges.
Some topics/resources included in the Toolkit are listed below. You can also preview the full table of contents.
To start building strong communities and transform the ways in which your congregation and community embrace those seeking to create a meaningful Jewish life, fill out the online form to gain access to the Audacious Hospitality Pilot Toolkit.
For more information, read an article about the Toolkit, written by April Baskin, the Union for Reform Judaism’s former Vice President of Audacious Hospitality.
