Leadership Initiatives: Lifelong Learning

CCAR has identified Torah study and professional development as pillars of its Mission in order to provide excellence in rabbinic leadership and to strengthen the Jewish community. Each CCAR learning event–-whether in-person seminar or teleconference, one hour or multi-day, instrumental skill based or text oriented-–is grounded in Torah or prayer. These programs advance competencies in Leadership, Professional Skills, Organizational Management and Growth, and Communications Systems.
