The Jewish Outreach Institute is all about helping Jewish communal professionals and lay leaders reach and serve more people. Lately, the United Jewish Communities—the umbrella organization for local Jewish federations and the largest Jewish charity in the world—has begun to focus on issues of outreach as well. We at JOI are thrilled to be partnered with UJC on a number of projects, including the newly-unveiled online self-assessment tool called “Creating a Welcoming Community”.
We hope communal professionals on all levels and the lay leaders who support them will take this brief web quiz. While not all questions will be applicable to all organizations, they can still serve to help you see your organization through a new set of eyes, and remind us “insiders” what it’s like to be a newcomer to the community. Take the quiz and let us know what you think!
