9781580231664: The Self-Renewing Congregation: Organizational Strategies for Revitalizing Congregational Life

How can my congregation become more vital?
How can we both honor the past and embrace the future?

[The Self-Renewing Congregation] calls for ‘renewal’...from within, not without―a renewal that begins with institutional self-reflection, proceeds through a process of self-engagement, and ends with self-generated innovations that can deepen the synagogue congregation as a sacred community. The core of this book offers any congregation seeking this path a compelling and realistic roadmap, a vision, and a process that is rooted in applied research and practical experience.”
―from the Foreword by Dr. Ron Wolfson, codeveloper, Synagogue 2000;
author of Shabbat: The Family Guide to Preparing for and Celebrating the Sabbath

Revitalizing and re-imagining the organization of our synagogues takes work! Combining expert advice and experience garnered from congregations throughout North America, The Self-Renewing Congregation shows us how transformative change is possible. A complete resource full of ideas, information, and support, this is a guide for those of us involved in, or interested in, energizing our spiritual communities.

Isa Aron, founding director of Hebrew Union College’s Experiment in Congregational Education (ECE), offers concrete, practical information on how to bring about change through collaborative leadership, and helps us grow dynamic, successful congregations.
