More than any other institution, the synagogue has sustained American Jewry. But to thrive rather than just survive, synagogues are challenged to break free from the mold of ethnic enclave and re-emerge as a center of the sacred, where creativity, spirituality and ethics are central. Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman holds that we make progress not by arguing better but by speaking differently. As a think-it-yourself challenge rather than a do-it-yourself manual, Hoffmans honest and compelling analysis of synagogues provides an entirely new set of concepts to facilitate transformative conversation among synagogue boards, denominational leaders, seminarians, cantors, rabbis, executive directors, educators and all who make synagogues their passion.
