Challenge: How Do We (Re) Engage the Men of Our Congregations?
Morning Conference for the URJ South District
Sunday, June 30, 2013
Westin Resort and Spa
321 North Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
$35 per person - includes breakfast
Why is this Conference being hosted for affiliates of the URJ South District?
The URJ South District shares MRJ’s concerns with the engagement of Reform Jews in synagogue life and building stronger connections between synagogues locally and nationally. Engaging men in synagogue life requires engaging programs, engaging leadership and engaging communications which are the core topics of the Sunday morning conference.
Reform Jewish men ranging in age from Boomers to Gen-y have slowly migrated away from active synagogue life. The effects of this disengagement are evident in the gender imbalance of synagogue boards, committees, youth groups and even in the rabbinic colleges. Unfortunately, this disengagement also provides our male youth with behavioral examples that non-participation in synagogue life is acceptable if not expected.
