The Synagogue: Family, Workplace or Community?
The author explains that synagogues in North America, and the rabbis who serve them, have rich, multifaceted relationships. She describes Rabbis as ritual leaders and also the managers of complex organizations with staffs, buildings and budgets. The synagogue's primary purpose of "serving the communal, educational, religious and social needs of its congregants" is necessarily intertwined with administrative and business concerns. The author argues that this complex grouping of needs leads to equally complex relationships between the rabbi and his/her congregants.
