Dr. Ron Wolfson is a visionary educator, inspirational speaker, and author of two seminal works: Relational Judaism: Using the Power of Relationships to Transform the Jewish Community and The Spirituality of Welcoming: How to Transform Your Congregation into a Sacred Community. He is also a professor at the Graduate Center for Jewish Education at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles.
Ron, has spent nearly three decades working towards bringing synagogues into the 21st Century. As the co-founder of Synagogue 3000 in 1995 along with Rabbi Lawrence Hoffman, he travelled coast to coast listening to congregants and clergy about what is most needed to help the modern Synagogue survive.
Ron will share what he has learned about engagement on his visit to Winnipeg as he guides us along our journey to achieve our vision for a dynamic, thriving centre of Jewish life.
The Scholar-in-Residence program with Dr. Wolfson will feature five major events impacting 1,000+ people over the course of the weekend. There will be opportunities for professional and lay leader development, community learning, and experiencing Shabbat and community through creative and engaging activities and events. This will include outreach to the Jewish community through a learning session at the Gray Academy of Jewish Education and a Sunday leadership workshop for Communal organizations on Relational Engagement, Quality Service and Welcoming.
