In a world where time is precious and congregational leaders are called on to do more and know more, the URJ has launched a number of online courses. These asynchronous courses are a way to take a deeper dive in an area of synagogue life around issues that congregants are seeking to understand and help leaders look to the future in a more strategic, thoughtful way.
