Eit Ratzon 2020: A Seminar on Employment Transition

Eit Ratzon 2020 Registration

When: Monday, June 22nd 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM and Tuesday, June 23rd 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM 
Where: Jewish Theological Seminary (3080 Broadway, New York, 10027)
Instructor: Rabbi Elliot Salo Schoenberg 

This workshop will help rabbis make adjustments to a new position, manage their emotions, and become aware of techniques to integrate into a new situation. Rabbis and lay leadership will learn a common language of transition and will work together to set priorities. Adjustments do not have to happen alone.

  • Learn the transition theory of William Bridges.
  • Learn tools to work with the new staff and lay leaders.
  • Leave the seminar with an action plan for the transition.

The workshop will look at theoretical constructs and provide practical suggestions on how to best weather these intense critical moments. We will provide practical advice on what to do first and how to set up priorities. This workshop has been highly successful, over the years, to best meet the needs of colleagues and congregations. There is no doubt that discussion of these issues helps ensure success in the new synagogue, school, on the college campus and even in the hospital setting.

This is our 27th year!
