This is seminar is aimed at those who want to develop vibrant and powerful synagogues or communities by building relationships, whilst empowering its members to become agents of innovation. It is also for those people who are motivated by the Jewish principle of tikkun olam (repairing the world). Delegates may already be been involved in social action projects and want to think about how synagogues can do and be more of a force for good in the local community – and how tikkun olam can play a greater role in their community’s Judaism. It is for people who want to go beyond good intentions to really make an impact.

On this seminar we will look at how to build communities where:-

• People have real relationships, where we know not only what others do but who they are and who they strive to be; where we share our stories with each other and work together to construct a communal narrative;
• Our communal narratives present people with a common mission, a common purpose, and a shared set of values and interests;
• Rather than waiting for others to do for them, people step up and take leadership;
• The community comes together to build the power needed to realise that vision and takes collective action to be the community that we dream of and to create a more just world that reflects our common values.
