The Scheidt Seminar


Since 1998, the URJ Scheidt Seminar for Presidents and Presidents-Elect has engaged over 1,700 congregational presidents. Funded through the generosity of the Scheidt family, the annual URJ Scheidt Seminar convenes congregational presidents to learn, network, build relationships, and enhance leadership skills. It serves as a springboard for learning throughout presidents' terms.

The 25th Annual Scheidt Online Convenings for Congregational Presidents, Co-Presidents and Presidents Elect will take place in person from Thursday March 14 – March 17, 2024 in Atlanta, GA.
