Sulam for Strategic Planners
Sulam for Strategic Planners (SSP) is a new program of United Synagogue to strengthen congregations and is designed for Synagogue leaders who are ready to begin planning - or to begin exploring the benefits and challenges of strategic planning. While this program is only open to USCJ-affiliated congregations in good standing, many congregational leaders interested in cultivating strategic thinking and planning in their board cultures will find USCJ’ s web-based content informative and useful.
