The future growth and vibrancy of Jewish communal service will depend in larger measure than ever before on how lay leaders and professionals work together as a team to set the agenda of communal life. By providing relevant and valid information that is integrated with the Jewish heritage and tradition, professionals play a crucial role in enabling lay leaders to consider new options and risk new approaches to meet the challenges of today's rapidly changing environment.
