Talmud Torah for Colleagues
In the spirit of Pirkei Avot 1:6, which advises "Provide for yourself a teacher, acquire for yourself a friend," the Board provides ongoing opportunities for members to advance their skills and interests through programs of professional growth and development:
We offer members a Professional Skills Series, which features seminars on a variety of pertinent topics and skills presented by experts in their respective fields. Current offerings include seminars on Synagogue Management and Boundary Issues for Rabbis.
Each year the Board of Rabbis produces its acclaimed High Holy Days Seminar, with renowned keynote presenters (including Rabbis Avi Weiss, Lawrence Kushner, David Teutsch, Gerald Wolpe & David Wolpe, and Edward Feinstein), workshops with colleagues, and a sermon exchange.
Our Critical Issues Series has presented Dr. Gary Tobin, Rabbi Michael Melchior, Leonard Fein, Rabbi David Ellenson and other prominent speakers on topics of special concern to rabbis and other Jewish communal leaders.
