Discussion Guide: Communities and Synagogues

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, October 2012

Sh'ma offers its readers questions to delve further into the ideas discussed in this issue. Including: Have independent minyanim and communities had an impact on the expectations of what mainstream synagogues are supposed to be and do? Or, have these communities become part of the synagogue scene without the name? How does a synagogue develop an identity? What role does "program" play in a synagogue's mission? Are synagogues able to blur the boundaries between what happens within and outside its walls?
