On Thursday night, the Leadership Training Institute met at the Mediation Center to learn about Coalition Building. Rabbi Bob Kaplan of Cause NY-JCRC led the session, teaching the group about his extensive experience building coalitions around the world. He stressed the importance of understanding one’s own and the group’s capacity and assessing the situation through a culturally competant lense. Leadership Training Institute members are currently in the process of planning two major community projects. Check back for more information in the coming weeks!
