Beth El Temple of West Hartford kicked off L.E.A.D. – a new initiative to engage young leaders of today and tomorrow. L.E.A.D. – which stands for “Learn. Engage. Affiliate. Develop.” – aims to teach participants leadership skills, how to create a vision for the future, and how to work in a community; form a cohesive unit of active Temple members; encourage participants to become involved in Temple committees and task forces; and develop future leaders who are equipped with knowledge, passion, and energy.
Rabbi Hayim Herring, CEO of the Herring Consulting Network, whose mission is to prepare today’s leaders for tomorrow’s organizations, was keynote educator of L.E.A.D.’s opening session on Tuesday, Feb. 19. Herring was executive director of STAR (Synagogues: Transformation and Renewal), a national foundation for congregational innovation and executive leadership development. He has published dozens of scholarly articles on the American Jewish community.
