Leadership Initiatives: Learning Opportunities for All Reform Rabbis 2017 - 3

Welcome to CCAR's Leadership Initiatives for All Rabbis
The CCAR is proud to serve as the Central Address for Rabbinic Lifelong Learning
and to offer rabbinic leadership learning opportunities designed by and for our rabbis.
While the role of today's rabbi continues to change, every rabbi is a teacher of Torah in all
that he or she does. From leading worship to leading a board meeting, today's rabbi is
expected to be versed in traditional text as well as in cutting-edge thinking. As the Jewish
community evolves, so do the expectations of its rabbinic leaders. Our program reflects
our anchor in tradition with an eye toward innovation.
The CCAR's leadership initiatives, including our learning opportunities, leadership travel, and
Convention engage the diversity of the Reform Rabbinate. Today's CCAR rabbi serves the
Jewish community in a multitude of ways: from small congregations to large, from historic
institutions to entrepreneurial endeavors, from academia to community-based rabbinic
positions, and from campus Hillel to the chaplaincy. There are learning opportunities within
the offerings of the CCAR leadership initiatives for every Reform Rabbi.
This year, we offer new initiatives as well as some of your most favorite programs. What's new?
Rabbi As Supervisor: Five Essential Skills They Never Taught You in Seminary, and Carrying
Our Own Grief As We Shepherd Others through Their Loss: Being a Mourner While Leading
a Community in Mourning. Programs offered include First 100 Days: for Every Rabbi in
Transition, Fundraising for Rabbis: Shekels-Creating a Giving Culture in Your Organization
and Synagogue, Refresh Your Rabbinate: Interim Training, and the Retirement Seminar with the
Reform Pension Board.
This year's leadership initiatives also include CCAR's 129th Annual Convention in Orange
Country, CA, with a focus on "Confronting the Future." Beginning on Sunday, March 18,
2018, we will immerse ourselves in examining the challenges that lie ahead of us as rabbis, for
our communities, and for the world, and how we can address them. We will share communal
worship, enjoy chevruta, and deepen our connections with each other. We will learn from
innovative thinkers, leading scholars, politicians at the forefront of change, and inspiring
members of our Reform communities.
Thank you for sharing your ideas, suggestions, and feedback. Your involvement is essential for
developing dynamic and exciting learning opportunities.
