Sh'ma November 2012: The Jewish Workplace--Complete Issue

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2012

The Jewish communal sector, which began as a clannish consortium that sometimes felt more like a bad family dinner, later moved toward professionalization with a rush of Jewish communal service programs and degrees. Today, the Jewish communal sector is poised for its next leap forward. As it prepares to make that leap, we wanted to explore how the Jewish community treats some of its employees with the least leverage and support: Are the values we espouse in our mission statements aligned with our human resource policies? Are we fostering a work environment that spurs open conversation and growth? Is it one that inspires our best and most creative talent? Do leadership models lead to burnout and women stepping off the professional ladder?
