Engagement: Jan 9- Gather Inc: Gather, Inc. is a national nonprofit organization committed to helping more people realize the Jewish life they seek. We do this by reorienting how Jewish professionals and organizations define success: the depth and breadth of the relationships they build with and among their constituents. Through centering relationships, individuals can access and create Jewish life that is most meaningful for them. By reimagining our community’s strategies and systems through a relational lens, we can reach more people with authenticity, relevance and joy. Gather, Inc. is committed to enriching and expanding our relationship-based engagement, making it an essential practice across all Jewish organizations, and positioning it at the heart of how Jewish community is built.


Intended to be experienced as teams, we are hoping the LAB Sessions will offer our partner organizations insight into themes and tools for each of our institutions and program to share, build, and grow. Much like our past engagement summits, each of the LAB Sessions will feature an outstanding professional from around the Jewish field. All participants will have to opportunity to learn as groups of 2-5 from sponsoring organization and will have time to work within the session as their team and with the wider group. Ten sessions will be offered, each team does not need to be the same for each session. Example: a topic may pertain to a membership committee but not to a finance committee, then those committee members should participate. The only exception being the preference to ensure there is one consistent staffer or layperson who attends all 10 sessions to ensure consistency across the course.  All sessions will be 7-9 pm, AS THE WORLD and the tech allow- in-person, with kosher dinner at 6:30 pm, and some hybrid model if needed. Cost is $180 to the sponsoring partner organization regardless of number of sessions attended or people from each org participating.
