Personal, Institutional, and Communal Leadership: Rethinking Leadership Development for the Jewish Community

By Erica Brown

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Summer 2007

The author maps out the differences between personal and institutional leadership and asserts that Jewish leadership development programs need to address both kinds of leadership, creating communal leadership norms and values that transcend both personal and institutional needs to sustain the health and vibrancy of the Jewish community as a whole. The dialectic tensions created by individual and institutional needs in relation to each other can generate enormous creativity if well harnessed, the author contends.
