Day of Learning at HUC-JIR/LA

Monday, January 25, 2010

The Sustaining Alumni Education Group is pleased to present a Day of Learning on the HUC-JIR/LA Campus, Thursday February 18, 2010.  We are excited to invite our teacher, Dr. Isa Aron, to share her most recent research on change.  The theme for the day is “Visionary Leadership in a Time of Change.”  Join us as we focus on Visionary Synagogues, a soon-to-be published (Alban Press in 2010) study of the long-term effects of congregational change initiatives, conducted by Isa Aron, Steven M. Cohen, Lawrence Hoffman, and Ari Y. Kelman.
 
•        In the morning join us for a discussion with Isa on how to bring far-reaching and long-lasting change based on her work with ECE and S2K.
•        In the afternoon, join us for a conversation on a developmental approach to leadership development.
 
As always, we will have time for catching up with other alumni as well as an update from Michael Zeldin on the State of the HUC Education programs.  Faculty will also share information about their current projects and research.
