The Scheidt Seminar

Current Opportunities

The 23rd Annual Scheidt Online Convening for Congregational Presidents, Co-Presidents and Presidents Elect will take place online from April 22nd-25th, 2021. Join your peers from across North America to learn from top notch Reform movement scholars and professionals, network with each other, and share ideas about how we move our congregations into the future. 
Think of it this way – you will not need to fill a suitcase or board a plane. You will, however, receive so many good ideas and so much important training that will help you and your congregation jettison into the future. 
The cost for the 4 day conference is $180. Please register by no later than April 5, 2021: Scheidt Registration 

The URJ Scheidt Seminar

Since 1998, the URJ Scheidt Seminar for Presidents and Presidents-Elect has engaged over 1,700 congregational presidents.

  • Learn and network with the leadership of the Reform Movement
  • Discuss solutions to everyday congregational problems
  • Improve leadership skills
  • Increase Jewish knowledge
  • Meet and network with presidents of other Reform congregations
