We are stepping through the threshold of a new age. Connected, individually empowered, globalized, diverse and personalized. The technologies of today are far more than digital communication tools – they are transforming society at an increasingly rapid rate, with important implications and opportunities for the Jewish community.
Rabbi Hayim Herring (of STAR: Synagogues Transformation and Renewal) and the visionary behind Synaplex) has recently published a new book: Tomorrow's Synagogue Today. You should read it, and buy a copy for the senior staff and every board member of your synagogue. Here's the link. Go take care of business and then come back and keep reading. OK, now that the box is on its way, I'll explain why you should read -- and share -- this book. First, Rabbi Herring gets it.
