*For day school board members and lay leaders only*


To provide day school lay leaders with skills and tools for more effective board governance while building connections for ongoing sharing and interaction.


In order to better customize the Board Institute experience, we would appreciate it if you would take a few moments to answer this survey.  

See a new e-book being published by the Jewish Funders Network and funded by The AVICHAI Foundation. This Greenbook is titled, “Jewish Day School Financial Sustainability and Affordability: A Guide for Funders,” and is similarly useful for day school board members.

  • For those of you who are planning to attend Monday’s workshop on Middle Income Affordability with Dan Perla and Tzivia Schwartz-Getzug, we recommend that you take a look at Chapter 5 in advance.

Pick from each of your tribes [those] who are wise and experienced, and I will appoint them as your leaders. Deuteronomy 1:13

Boards, like their organizations, change in their cycles from startup, to maturity, renewal and more. In all parts of this cycle boards should aspire to the highest levels of leadership.  How does our strategic, fiduciary and generative engagement change through these cycles? In this interactive session we will touch upon many best practices of boards, including composition, engagement, board volunteerism, fundraising, term limits, ambassadorship, strategic planning and vision/mission focus. We will explore what bringing your Jewish values means to your Board leadership. And before we meet we will ask you to tell us your current challenges beforehand so that we can address them in the session. You will take away your next steps toward an even higher functioning and efficient board.
