LGBTQ trip to Israel

Show off your pride at the Pride Parade in Tel Aviv on June 13, 2014 with your JCC friends.

Tel Aviv is known as the gay capital of the Middle East, and for the first time, you can join your JCC friends to visit Israel next June through a LGBTQ JCC Association Boarding Pass trip. As well as visiting classic tourist sites such as Jerusalem, Masada and the Dead Sea, and the Galilee, the group will meet with founders of a religious gay group in Jerusalem and dine with the people who established Cafe Albi, a self-declared home for the LGBTQ community of Tel Aviv. Cook an Israeli meal with a professional chef, welcome Shabbat with music and song at the Port of Tel Aviv, take a graffiti walking tour, and discuss issues of Jewish identity. There will be plenty of time to enjoy Tel Aviv’s world-class restaurants, shopping, and nightlife too.

How to help your Front Line Staff Understand and Transmit Your JCC’s Vision – A Workshope for Middle Managers

Description:

Your JCC has a mission and vision that guide your work. JCC Association Benchmarking results show us that JCCs who engage all employees thrive and grow. But how do you get your part time, seasonal or other staff who are not “lifers”, on board? How do we communicate the important messages to these staff and help them feel part of the JCC?

 

Spend the day with your Bay Area colleagues and facilitator Joy Brand-Richardson, Director of Training at JCC Association. Learn tips and discuss techniques to gain buy in from all employees and help those employees spread the vision of the JCC to the community and the JCC participants.

 

This interactive workshop targets Middle Managers who supervise part time and seasonal staff.
