Jewish Communities Around the World


Connecting with Judaism and Israel | Sunday Plenary, 2014 Biennial

Membership in Jewish organizations is down. Day school enrollment has peaked. Federation campaigns are flat. The fastest growing and second largest category of Jews is Just Jewish. Young Jewish adults are unengaged and aging baby boomers are disengaging. Yet, in the era of Facebook, people crave face-to-face community. It’s all about relationships.

With this simple, but profound idea, noted educator and community revitalization pioneer Dr. Ron Wolfson will present practical strategies and case studies to transform the old model of Jewish institutions into relational communities. He sets out twelve principles of relational engagement to guide Jewish lay leaders, professionals and community members in transforming institutions into inspiring communities whose value-proposition is to engage people and connect them to Judaism and community in meaningful and lasting ways.

Israel Study Tour 2012: A Visit with Rabbi Eliezer Waldman


Rabbi Eliezer Waldman, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat Kiryat Arba outside of Hebron, Israel, speaks to a group from Fellowship Church in Winter Springs, FL. He discusses spring as a time of new beginnings and its connection with the festival of Passover. He then puts the season in the historic context of the birth of new life in Judea and Samaria, as it was during Pesach in 1968 that 88 people celebrated the first Seder at the Park Hotel in Hebron (the community where Abraham first settled and King David first established his throne). That group, originally headed by Rabbis Levinger and Waldman, remained long after Pesach and were eventually relocated to an abandoned military base in nearby Kiryat Arba. In 1971 Kiryat Arba became the first community to be established in Judea and Samaria. Today it boasts more than 7,000 residents. Tying the history of Pesach to Israel’s present, Rabbi Waldman compares the Egyptians, Israel’s ancient oppressors, to her present day foes, saying that nothing any enemy can do will thwart God’s purposes and plan for His people.
