Rockland Jewish Initiative Synagogue Leadership Council meeting: Alternative Models of Affiliation with Lisa Harris Glass

Delve into one of the most sacrosanct areas of synagogues: membership and dues. Spurred on by changing demographics (including generational differences), synagogues across the country are experimenting with (and exploring) alternative models of affiliation. From free will and fair share, to investor models and tapas, congregations are exploring and finding other ways to remain viable.

Lisa Harris Glass, Director of the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey’s Synagogue Leadership Initiative, has spent more than 20 years in synagogue management, administration, and consulting. Synagogue leaders interested in attending should call Cantor Barry Kanarek at 845-362-4200 ext. 170.
