Based on the successful program of the same name at the Jewish Federation of Northern NJ, Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ has launched the Synagogue Leadership Initiative (SLI) in our area to help synagogues explore common issues, concerns, and trends in synagogues life and to help synagogue leaders, both lay and professional, develop important leadership skills. SLI offers programs and workshops with the goal of strengthening synagogues in order to enrich Jewish life in the community. See the Upcoming Events section for more information on scheduled workshops and programs.
The Synagogue Leadership Council, chaired by Jamie Ramsfelder, seeks to identify and recommend programs and services that Federation can provide in order to strengthen and energize the synagogues in the Greater MetroWest area. This committee is comprised of lay people and clergy representing all denominations and geographical regions of GMW.
