  • About the Author
  • How can my congregation transform itself?
    How can we re-dedicate ourselves to learning?
    Improving spiritual connection in our communities takes work! Combining expert advice and experience garnered from congregations throughout North America, Becoming a Congregation of Learners shows us how transformative change is possible. A complete resource full of ideas, information and support, this is a guide for those of us involved in, or interested in, energizing our spiritual communities.
    Isa Aron, director of Hebrew Union College’s Experiment in Congregational Education (ECE), offers concrete, practical information on how to bring about change and revitalization, and helps us make learning a vibrant, integral part of congregational life.
    “Ultimately, synagogue transformation depends on, and leads to, personal transformation of individuals…. This book is a service to congregations who dare to think differently; who have faith enough to face the future; and who see the synagogue as the institutionalization of the covenant between God and Israel.”
    —from the Foreword by Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman, co-developer, Synagogue 2000
    “Must reading. Since Sinai, the study of Torah has been the burning incandescent passion of the Jew. In this wonderful book, Isa Aron tells us how the synagogue can encourage every Jew, young and old, to embrace Jewish learning, and how Torah study can be made the foundation of synagogue life.”
    Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie, president, Union of American Hebrew Congregations
    “Isa Aron has written an insightful and important book about the challenges and opportunities of synagogue transformation.... A must-read for anyone in a leadership position in congregations!”
    Dr. Ron Wolfson, Vice-President, University of Judaism in
    Los Angeles; author of
    The Art of Jewish Living Series
    “A thorough examination of what it takes to become a real ‘community of learners.’ Aron gives us not only the whys but also the hows, not only the vision but also the tools to implement it.”
    Rabbi Elyse Goldstein, rabbinic director of Kolel: The Adult Centre  for Liberal Jewish Learning; editor of The Women’s Haftarah Commentary
    “A skillful blend of educational theory and illuminating examples make the case powerfully: the more Torah, the more life.”
    Rabbi Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer, president-elect, Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association,
    co-author of
    Judaism for Two: A Spiritual Guide for Strengthening and
    Celebrating Your Loving Relationship
