How to transform the model of twentieth-century Jewish
institutions into twenty-first-century relational communities
offering meaning and purpose, belonging and blessing.
"What really matters is that we care about the people we seek to
engage. When we genuinely care about people, we will not only
welcome them; we will listen to their stories, we will share ours,
and we will join together to build a Jewish community that enriches
our lives." from the Introduction
Membership in Jewish organizations is down. Day school
enrollment has peaked. Federation campaigns are flat. The fastest
growing and second largest category of Jews is Just Jewish. Young
Jewish adults are unengaged and aging baby boomers are disengaging.
Yet, in the era of Facebook, people crave face-to-face
It's all about relationships. With this simple, but profound
idea, noted educator and community revitalization pioneer Dr. Ron
Wolfson presents practical strategies and case studies to transform
the old model of Jewish institutions into relational communities.
He sets out twelve principles of relational engagement to guide
Jewish lay leaders, professionals and community members in
transforming institutions into inspiring communities whose
value-proposition is to engage people and connect them to Judaism
and community in meaningful and lasting ways."
