Sulam for Presidents and Sulam for Officers

Help your leadership orchestrate success. 

If your incoming congregation president is anything like the more than 1,000 such leaders we’ve trained, he or she has several questions about what to expect and how to prepare for this crucial position.

Similarly, the officers in your synagogue have a lot on their plates and can greatly benefit from best practices. 

Sulam for Presidents and Sulam for Officers prepare your leadership for the responsibilities and challenges that lay ahead.

Two Opportunities To Gather

Sulam for Presidents
Taking place over three and a half days, including Shabbat, Sulam for Presidents is a leadership training retreat for newly elected presidents and vice presidents likely to become president in the next two years. The intimate setting allows you to spend quality time with your peers, reflect on your learning and recharge your spiritual batteries.

Sulam for Officers
Taking place over two days, Sulam for Officers is an intensive leadership program that arms officers with the resources and tools needed to contribute to the leadership team and to continue their climb up the leadership ladder.

At both programs, you will:

  • Develop action plans that can be implemented on return to your congregation

  • Gain knowledge on topics such as mission, vision, board development, strategic thinking, change management, fundraising, and financial sustainability

  • Build a support network that will last throughout your leadership and beyond

The first day, we talked about everything I was struggling with and needed to do as incoming president. Within the first six hours, we had touched on all of our synagogue’s key issues. I am comforted that my synagogue wasn’t the only one dealing with these challenges. Overall, it was a great experience.

It was so different than what I thought it would be. I was told, ‘You have to go; you’re gonna love it.’ That’s all I needed to hear. I went in thinking it would be hands-on how to be a president, the nuts and bolts of how to run a board meeting. It was so much more than that. I think it was spiritual at its roots which I wasn’t expecting.
