Thank you to Rabbi Hayim Herring for sharing his expertise with us on a webinar last week and on our online book group throughout the month of June, as we discuss his book, Tomorrow’s Synagogue Today.
Over 50 people registered for our webinar to learn from Hayim and discuss the concepts he shared and their application to their congregational settings. We discussed the very tachlis details of who leads change and how, and big (and sometimes purposefully theoretical) questions like "will synagogues as we know them continue to exist in the next few decades"?
You can find the recording of the webinar and related resources shared during the webinar here.
Our online book group — held in a Facebook Group — continues, and we welcome you to join us! Current conversations have been around testing and piloting new ideas, what has changed in synagogue life in the last 10 years, and how do we retain a sense of sacred community while still being respectful of the desire for individualism and self-directedness? Come on over to the book group to respond, and/or to pose your own questions too!
