This handbook is a follow-up to the January 1999 conference on Jewish Continuity: Taking the Next Steps. The conference brought together nearly 100 professional and volunteer leaders, representing 40 communities and 10 national agencies in North America, to enable communities to take the Jewish community agenda to the next level of planning and programming. The conference was designed to provide the opportunity to analyze, engineer and identify new directions and more comprehensive approaches toward evaluating success. The key elements of the conference were adapted and reformatted in this handbook to be used by communities to stimulate new thinking and action about how communities can be compelling centers for Jewish life in the coming century.
