The URJ Scheidt Seminar

Registration is open for the URJ Scheidt Seminar taking place in October 2020 through September 8, 2020, or until we hit capacity.

This seminar will take place on October 15-18, 2020 in Atlanta, 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 2011. 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.
