Liberal Judaism has teamed up with Citizens UK for a unique training course at Northwood & Pinner Liberal Synagogue (NPLS) on February 24 and 25, which will teach some of the key concepts, skills and tools of community organising.
This is a course designed for people who want their communities to be both vibrant and powerful, as well as getting more members actively involved and not just relying on the same faces.
It is also for those individuals and communities who are motivated by the Jewish principle of tikkun olam – that it is our responsibility to partner with God in repairing the world.
The course will show how synagogues can do and be more of a force for good in the local community and go beyond good intentions to really make an impact.
Sessions will cover topics including how to participate effectively in synagogue life, strengthen congregational leadership, promote membership growth and take action to bring about a better world. There will also be plenty of opportunities for reflection, discussion and hands-on participation.
The course is based on the programme offered by the Highlander School, the training ground for the Civil Rights movement, where Rosa Parks trained.
This training is a great way to boost capacity, energy and focus and will be most effective if you come with others from your synagogue.
Northwood & Pinner Liberal Synagogue, which is easily accessible by car and close to Northwood underground station, is very generously offering home hospitality for people who are travelling to attend.
