Sharing Leadership: A Work in Process and Progress

By Jan Katzew

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2007

A distinctive aspect of Reform Judaism is that decisions of religious policy and practice are the shared province of professionals and volunteers. The author discusses this partnership, echoing the zugot (pairs of rabbinic leaders) of early Rabbinic Judaism - a rabbi and a congregational president, a professional and a volunteer, walking and working together in pursuit of a living Torah that is authentic and relevant, rooted in Jewish tradition and open to Jewish innovation.
