  • About the Author
  • How can my congregation become more vital?
    How can we both honor the past and embrace the future?
    [The Self-Renewing Congregation] calls for ‘renewal’…from within, not without—a renewal that begins with institutional self-reflection, proceeds through a process of self-engagement, and ends with self-generated innovations that can deepen the synagogue congregation as a sacred community. The core of this book offers any congregation seeking this path a compelling and realistic roadmap, a vision, and a process that is rooted in applied research and practical experience.”
    —from the Foreword by Dr. Ron Wolfson, codeveloper, Synagogue 2000;
    author of
    Shabbat: The Family Guide to Preparing for and Celebrating the Sabbath
    Revitalizing and re-imagining the organization of our synagogues takes work! Combining expert advice and experience garnered from congregations throughout North America, The Self-Renewing Congregation 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, founding director of Hebrew Union College’s Experiment in Congregational Education (ECE), offers concrete, practical information on how to bring about change through collaborative leadership, and helps us grow dynamic, successful congregations.
    Praise for Isa Aron's Work
    “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.”
    Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman, codeveloper, Synagogue 2000; author of The Art of Public Prayer: Not for Clergy Only and The Way Into Jewish Prayer
    “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 Torah Commentary
    “A skillful blend of educational theory and illuminating examples.”
    Rabbi Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer, President, Reconstructionist
    Rabbinical Association
