9781580236669: Relational Judaism: Using the Power of Relationships to Transform the Jewish Community

How to transform the model of twentieth-century Jewish institutions into twenty-first-century relational communities offering meaning and purpose, belonging and blessing.

"What really matters is that we care about the people we seek to engage. When we genuinely care about people, we will not only welcome them; we will listen to their stories, we will share ours, and we will join together to build a Jewish community that enriches our lives."
―from the Introduction

Membership in Jewish organizations is down. Day school enrollment has peaked. Federation campaigns are flat. The fastest growing and second largest category of Jews is “Just Jewish.” Young Jewish adults are unengaged and aging baby boomers are disengaging. Yet, in the era of Facebook, people crave face-to-face community.

“It's all about relationships.” With this simple, but profound idea, noted educator and community revitalization pioneer Dr. Ron Wolfson presents practical strategies and case studies to transform the old model of Jewish institutions into relational communities. He sets out twelve principles of relational engagement to guide Jewish lay leaders, professionals and community members in transforming institutions into inspiring communities whose value-proposition is to engage people and connect them to Judaism and community in meaningful and lasting ways.

Rabbi David Wolpe, Sinai Temple, Los Angeles

“Skips the self-flagellation and offers a people-to-people paradigm that individuals and organizations can embrace.”

“With passion of insight and humor of experience, Ron Wolfson weaves a vision for our future.”
Rabbi Elyse Frishman, editor, Mishkan T'filah: A Reform Siddur

Dr. Kerry M. Olitzky, executive director, Jewish Outreach Institute

“Consecrate the new: rejuvenate the old. With these two imperatives, Ron Wolfson demonstrates that without belonging, believing and behaving are orphaned.... His writing confirms the insight of the philosopher of relationship, Martin Buber: 'all real living is meeting.’”
Rabbi Harold Schulweis, Valley Beth Shalom, Encino, California

Rabbi Ed Feinstein, Valley Beth Shalom; author, Tough Questions Jews Ask: A Young Adult’s Guide to Building a Jewish Life

Any person, team or community struggling with creating and practicing a relevant Judaism in this very consumerist day will benefit tremendously from the transformative dialogue ... stories and well-articulated challenges woven throughout the pages of this book.”
Rabbi Stephanie Kolin, co-director, Union for Reform Judaism’s Just Congregations

“Groundbreaking ... call[s] us to return to the central mission of Judaism and offer[s] practical guidance on how to get there. A must read.”
Rabbi Baruch HaLevi, co-author, Revolution of Jewish Spirit; spiritual leader, Congregation Shirat Hayam, Greater Boston

David Cygielman, CEO, Moishe House

“A must read if you want to learn how to make the tikkun that the Jewish community is desperate for: places that will nurture real relationships, human connectedness, personal engagement, holy community.”

Lisa Farber Miller, senior program officer, Rose Community Foundation, Denver, Colorado

Rabbi Jill Jacobs, executive director, Truah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights; author, Where Justice Dwells: A Hands-On Guide to Doing Social Justice in Your Jewish Community

“Important ... captures the spirit and drive behind the most profound transformation of American Judaism in a century.... A must read for rabbis, professionals and lay leaders who steward the Jewish community.”
Rabbi Noah Farkas, Valley Beth Shalom, Encino, California

“Readable and usable ... it is about how to ensure Judaism’s and the Jewish people’s contribution to the world as we near completion of the fourth millennium of Jewish history. As he asks on the last page, 'What are we waiting for?’ I, for one, will not.”
Dr. Bruce Powell, head of school, New Community Jewish High School, West Hills, California

“Brilliantly takes the emphasis [on our communal nature] and shows how it can become a reservoir of meaning in our lives, a strong tie to God and to the Jewish community, and a way for Jewish institutions to regain the allegiance of Jews of all ages.”
Rabbi Elliot Dorff, rector and distinguished professor of philosophy, American Jewish University

Rabbi Peter S. Berg, The Temple, Atlanta, Georgia

“Codifies what would seem to be uncodifiable, the secret of how to rejuvenate Jewish life.... Gives practical and inspiring advice on how to build relationships in every sphere of life―and at the end we will not only have happier people, happier friends and happier synagogues, but we will also have a vibrant Jewish community. We will no longer be asking ‘Will Judaism in America survive?’ as we will be too busy thriving.”
Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, author, Jewish Literacy and A Code of Jewish Ethics
