Communities of Practice (CoP) convene cohorts of congregational leaders for long-term, innovative learning from experts, including opportunities to ask big questions, and share ideas and best principles. The curriculum includes face-to-face and virtual gatherings, e-learning, and coaching from URJ staff.

Using lessons learned, participants design and implement experiments for their own congregations through which they learn to take risks, benefit from successes and challenges, and evaluate and share their results. The experiments’ outcomes are intended serve as a catalyst to help congregations transform into welcoming communities of meaning and purpose, as well as expand the knowledge base of the field and the Reform Movement.
