Leadership Transitions

Leadership Transitions

In this week’s Torah portion, Pinchas, God instructs Moses,

“Ascend these heights of Abarim and view the land that I have given to the Israelite people. When you have seen it, you too shall be gathered to your kin, just as your brother Aaron was.”

Although Moses had a marvelous opportunity to see where he had led his people, the act of taking the Israelites across the border – and fighting for the milk and honey – was left to the next generation of leaders.

As congregational families, how do we manage feelings of disruption and discomfort, especially as we prepare to welcome new clergy and senior staff to the temple family.
