Congregations thrive on the contributions and services of clergy, professional staff and active volunteer leaders. Being a synagogue leader is a privilege as well as an obligation. Our task is to work in harmony with other leaders, whether they are clergy, professional staff or volunteers, to build, develop and maintain a well-run, spiritually fulfilling congregation where the sacred informs the practical and the practical creates the sacred.

Congregational leaders navigate some of the most basic, and essential, areas of congregational life and governance including long range planning, budgets and fundraising, leadership development, staffing and staff relations, bylaws, policies, legal issues and mergers, and transitions and dissolutions.
