Leadership Development

The UPJ develops community by investing in our leaders. We provide leadership training for both professional and volunteer leaders. There are loans for rabbis, cantors, Jewish educators and Jewish communal professionals. Leadership seminars are held for current and potential leaders, and there is training for those who have served in the past to be mentors and guides for the future.

The UPJ offers and sponsors leadership development through national and international programs of leadership (including the Nahum Goldmann program and the Beutel Program) for lay leaders and presidents. UPJ also provides loans and grants for people to train as rabbis, cantors, Jewish educators and Jewish communal professionals.
