Convening the strengths of our JCC executive leadership network allows chief executives at our JCCs and independent overnight camps to engage in discovery and learning targeted to their specific challenges. This annual seminar offers the opportunity to connect on different levels, including by size of JCC, region, JCC facility or program offerings, or through general interest topics. Outside facilitators provide workshops and presentations that offer insights, tools and strategies to benefit JCC executives. Structured meetings and impromptu networking over a few days allows attendees to see colleagues as resources, and to experience their greater connection to the JCC Movement.
Kivunim (Hebrew for directions) is designed to increase first-time JCC executive directors’ understanding of Jewish life and learning, helping their JCCs to better achieve their Jewish mission. It also provides new executive directors the opportunity to share the challenges of being a JCC executive director, the benefits of building a collegial network, and the resources offered from JCC Association.
