Mussar Leadership Program for Federations and other Jewish Organizations – Lead with Jewish Values:
The goal of this program is to enhance the skills and abilities of Jewish community leaders by applying the insights and methods of the Jewish tradition of Mussar, a treasury of techniques and understandings that have evolved over the past thousand years within the Jewish world to guide the individual soul to reach its highest potential. The premise of the program is that Jewish leadership is enhanced in many ways when informed and shaped by specifically Jewish values. Not only is leadership enhanced, the organizations and programs and ultimately the entire community benefits when the leadership embodies the highest ideals as articulated within our own tradition.
