resources for jewish leaders

At Lead we are aware that leading during this challenging time can mean drawing on skills and resources you hoped you never needed and those you never knew you had.  We’re all learning together about what it means to lead teams and organisations.  We are working closely with communal organisations to provide support where it is helpful at all levels of leadership.  If you’d like to talk about support for you or your organisation, please do get in touch.  If you’d like to offer support to leaders – whether it’s coaching, mentoring, strategic planning or crisis management, please also let us know.

In the meantime we’d like to share a few resources that we hope will be useful points of reflection and thought for you at this time.  We’ll update the links here with new resources and articles when we can and please feel free to share anything you’ve found that may resonate with others that we can share more widely.

Thanks to all of you who are working in ways you won’t ever have thought you could – you’re doing a tremendous job.  Your leadership is sustaining our community in so many ways.

It’s the same but it’s different

About the jlc community portal

As each of us adapts to the coronavirus pandemic and measures to contain it, people and local groups have inspired with acts of kindness providing food, care and comfort. Our communal leadership and vital charities have been working well and working together to assist the community through this crisis.
The JLC connects and coordinates the Jewish charitable sector, strengthens and supports leadership across our community, and magnifies and amplifies the collective voice of our member organisations. Now is the time for cooperation and collective responsibility.
Working alongside the Board of Deputies at the beginning of the pandemic, the JLC regularly brought together CEOs from over 60 organisations. Our teams have been working with many more parts of the community every day during this crisis.
This portal is a development of that work, collating advice, resources and access to communal life online, in one place, for everyone across the Jewish community.
