The URJ Scheidt Seminar

Registration is now closed for the URJ Scheidt Seminar taking place in April 2019.

This seminar will take place on April 4-7, 2019 in Peachtree City, GA.

Funded through the generosity of the Scheidt family, the annual URJ Scheidt Seminar for Presidents and Presidents-Elect convenes presidents from congregations of different locations and sizes to learn, network, build relationships, and enhance leadership skills. It serves as a springboard for learning throughout presidents' terms. 

  • The cost of attending the URJ Scheidt Seminar (includes registration, accommodations, food, and materials):
    • $995 for a single-occupancy room
    • $835 for a double-occupancy room
  • Grant opportunities:
    • URJ Small Congregation Grants of up to $400 will be available to participants from small congregations (250 member units and under). If you are eligible, you will receive a link to apply for this grant in your registration confirmation email.
    • Additional $250 grants will be available to presidents and presidents-elect from congregations of any size that have not sent participants to the URJ Scheidt Seminar since 2010. To receive this grant or to inquire if your congregation is eligible, reach out to the URJ Leadership Institute prior to registering. If you are eligible, you will receive a discount code that you will need to enter when you register.
Agenda and Logistics

In addition to this seminar, there will be another opportunity to attend the URJ Scheidt Seminar in February 2019. Pricing and agenda are the same in both locations, with Rabbi Rick Jacobs, Amy Asin, Cathy Rolland, RJE, Rabbi Sam Joseph, and Rabbi Lou Feldstein serving as faculty in both seminars. Cantor Rosalie Boxt is also part of the 2019 URJ Scheidt Seminar.

An individual can attend the seminar only once. Presidents, presidents-elect, and those who have been asked to serve as presidents and have agreed are eligible.
