PEP-RJ provides several resources to its members. These resources include, but are not limited to:
Our conferences provide a great opportunity for networking, collegiality and professional development. A mixture of speakers, workshops and informal conversation peppers our multi-day conference.
Our next PEP-RJ Conference will be December 3-6, 2017 in Boston, MA prior to the URJ Biennial. Learn more.
Every other year, PEP-RJ members complete a salary survey. The survey includes questions of synagogue size, area population, benefits accrued and so on. Survey results are shared in a timely manner for the use of our members in advocacy.
PEP PRO is a live document which lists categories of proficiencies for our members. In other words, if a member is looking for help with Sukkot ideas, they can open up PEP PRO, scroll to “Sukkot” and see what other members have proficiency with Sukkot planning. It is a valuable resource for planning, visioning and troubleshooting.
PEP-RJ has a private group for members on The Tent, which is the URJ’s online platform for resource sharing and digital discussions.
Occasionally, one of our members creates a webinar for our membership. Previous examples include:
- Magnifying the Connectivity Lens: A Practical Application to Building Caring Communities by Laura Intfen
- The Organized Jewish Professional - by Elisa Heisman
- Beyond Basic Judaism: Creating An Innovative Network of Adult Learners, by Bonnie Graff”
