Ron Wolfson Guest Speaker

Relational Judaism: Using the Power of Relationships to Transform the Jewish Community

A workshop to inspire those seeking to transform congregations and organizations into communities of welcome.

 

Featuring Dr. Ron Wolfson, Fingerhut Professor of Education at American Jewish University in Los Angeles and Co-founder of Synagogue 3000


The face of American Judaism has changed. People no longer join synagogues or support Jewish organizations out of obligation, but seek connection for many other reasons. What then, are the barriers? How can we remove these obstacles? Are these barriers different for those on the margins, like interfaith families and millennials? Why are they often invisible, even to dedicated leaders?  Bestselling author and University of Judaism scholar Ron Wolfson will focus on his bestselling book Relational Judaism, providing insight for leaders seeking to create Jewish communities where individuals find healing, meaning and connection.
