The Development of Professional Leadership in the Jewish Community

By Zev Hymowitz, Gary A. Tobin, Stephen Mark Dobbs

Institute for Jewish and Community Research, 2004

This study presents findings and recommendations on the development of professional leadership in the Jewish community. The authors state that the issue of professional development has not received as much research attention as one might expect, even though it has clear consequences for the well-being of the Jewish community. The genesis of this study is based in part on the desire to secure a current snapshot of professional development in the Jewish community. The report is organized around sixteen related topics or rubrics: professional development, motivation, recruitment, marketing, preservice, retention, lay leadership, supervision, continuing education, accountability, community investment, programs, informal education, balance, gender, and leadership. The authors offer recommendations on how to make professional development a top Jewish community priority.
