Leaders of the Reform

Unfortunately, antisemitism and hate are pervasive in our society.   As congregational leaders, we must do what we can to keep our congregations safe and secure, knowing that there are no guarantees.   When we use the power of the Jewish communal network to share resources and expertise, we are stronger.

Your participation is an investment in the future of synagogue life, the next generation of Jewish leaders, and advocacy for an authentic and dynamic Judaism.
