"Leading with a Jewish Heart was a wonderful way to learn about the inner workings of the Temple and what it takes to successfully run this amazing organization. I really enjoyed meeting so many fellow members, learning their stories and developing those relationships. It opened my eyes and gave me a new perspective on the role of the Temple within the greater Jewish community. It also helped me learn more about myself and my potential for leadership. I was inspired to be more active and engaged in the TI community, so much so that I have since joined the Board."
-Rachel Protzel, Trustee

We estimate that it costs approximately $180 per participant, but it is important to Temple Israel to offer this program free of charge. A donation of any amount helps us provide this excellent, comprehensive leadership development program to support the future leaders of our congregation.
