First 100 Days


e heard the following feedback from attendees at the recent CCAR
“First 100 Days” in-person seminar:
Having started at a new synagogue before, I knew that how things
get started makes a tremendous difference as to where we are in
a year or five or twenty. The CCAR’s “First 100 Days” gave me the
focus, the tools, and the insight to structure those opening weeks
in meaningful, thoughtful plans for getting off on the right foot and
keeping the journey going positively. (Rabbi Mark Kaiserman)

The “First 100 Days” Seminar enabled me to think about the significant
bigger issues involved in my transition to a new position. It gave me the
venue and the language to think about my own leadership style and role. It
also put some of the practical tasks in perspective. (Rabbi Beth Klafter)

“First 100 Days” was an outstanding opportunity to prepare for transition
in community with colleagues. I feel ready to take on my new pulpit with
First 100
resources and relationships I wouldn’t have had otherwise. Larry Peers
Days was
engaged us, speaking fluent “Jewish,” though he’s not. Steve Fox and Debbie
Prinz added resources specific to our settings. (Rabbi Barry Block)
Taking the two-day “First 100 Days” training through the CCAR is the best
decision I’ve made in this transition so far. The consultant they bring in …
teaches by making people practice the techniques he offers as he presents
them. We learn from each other and gain best practices for shepherding a
congregation through transition. (Rabbi Ethan Bair)
