Byachad : Synagogue Board Development (Workbook)


Byachad is a 72-page workbook that every synagogue board member should have.

One of the signs of a vital congregation is its leadership. Prospective leaders and members may look at our building, our programs, and brochures, but they will also take the measure of our leadership. Do our leaders seem to take joy in Jewish living? Does Judaism make our leaders’ board governance something special–something of which prospective leaders and members want to be a part?

This workbook is an attempt to build board consensus about critical governance functions and to create a systematic plan to motivate and support leaders in developing new practices. By focusing on shared congregational goals, leaders will provide the right direction, make the right assessments, and provide the right feedback–building enduring relationships as they do this important leadership work.

Byachad is the perfect companion piece to Stepping Forward: Synagogue Visioning & Planning.
