Rooted in the belief that great Jewish communities need great leaders, Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership launches the Center for Jewish Leadership, a programmatic center dedicated to the leadership development of Jewish communal professionals and volunteers.
This is one in a series of workshops and master classes designed to enhance the knowledge, effectiveness, creativity, and strategic agility of current and future Jewish leaders, advancing the missions of the organizations they serve.
Understanding Jewish values is essential for professionals and volunteers working with members of the Jewish community. Under the expert guidance of Rabbi Vernon Kurtz, learn core concepts and explore how they relate to working in and advancing Jewish organizations.
Rabbi Vernon Kurtz is the Rabbi of North Suburban Synagogue Beth El in Highland Park and a member of the Spertus Institute faculty.
He is a past president of the Chicago Board of Rabbis and the Council of Religious Leaders of Metropolitan Chicago, as well as the recipient of a number of prestigious awards including the Rabbi Simon Greenberg Rabbinic Achievement Award from the Jewish Theological Seminary.
The Spertus Approach — Spertus Institute cultivates an atmosphere of lively discourse. We often hear from students and participants that their Spertus experiences are inspiring and transformative. That is by design, and it results in meaningful opportunities for personal and professional growth.
The Center for Jewish Leadership is supported by generous grants from the Crown Family and an anonymous foundation.
We are grateful for their support.
Learn. Lead. Inspire.
