The Business of Being A Rabbi

By Lawrence Troster

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2004

Troster argues that although lay leaders say they want their rabbis to be spiritual leaders, they do not give them the authority of leadership. Rabbis are now subject to corporate-style evaluations and a business moral modal is governing the world of the rabbinate.
