Sulam Leadership

Originally referring to a four-day training program, over Shabbat weekend, for incoming presidents of USCJ congregations, Sulam Leadership expanded to include programs for emerging leaders, current leaders, officers with portfolios (such as membership, fundraising, etc.), as well as new presidents. Leaders climb the ladder (sulam) of sequential programs that build on previous ones.

In the USCJ strategic plan, national consultants, the local kehilla relationship manager (KRM) and lay and staff leaders work together. A KRM will serve about fifty congregations. The KRMs will use our Sulam strategic tool kit to clarify congregational needs, assess readiness, and help synagogues resource the right programs at the right time. They will be champions of communication and provide USCJ with feedback on what is working well and what could be improved.
