Jewish Communal Leadership and Congregational Governance


A Resource Manual for Training and Developing Effective Boards and Committees.
By Rabbi Shawn Zevit and Shira Stutman
with contributions by Rabbi Mordechai Liebling and Rabbi Elyse Wechterman

This resource manual for training and developing effective boards and committees is divided into three parts. The first contains traditional text study and congregational systems and leadership theory. The second is based on the Tachlis (practical) experience of other congregations and includes examples of congregational documents on subjects ranging from governance to committee-building. Last, actual synagogue board training agendas are presented.
