Small organizations are critical to building a dynamic and inclusive Jewish community — yet they face unique institutional challenges. That’s why this professional development series is designed to address the important challenges faced by the multiple-hat-wearing staff of smaller organizations.

Brought to you through a partnership between SketchPad

This year’s theme is The Arc of Engagement.
