Today, the core affirmation of Jewish leadership development programs is that those who aspire to Jewish leadership must be Jewishly literate. However, Jewish literacy alone is not sufficient to guarantee effective leadership. The curriculum therefore should encompass what leaders need to know and experience to enable them to build vibrant Jewish communities, thereby allowing others to participate in the processes of Jewish growth.
