The Leadership Development program gives participants an overview of a blend of what it means to be a Jew, interacting with the Jewish Federation, ethical leadership, the lay-clergy-staff relationship, the history of Reform Judaism, and spirituality. The program is funded by the Jon Meyers Leadership Fund, set up by Jon’s parents, Sue and the late Dave Meyers.

Please contact Executive Director Dennis DePorte if you are interested in participating.
