Feeling the Power of Our Jewish Ecosystem
Our Jewish ecosystem is buzzing with connections, conversations and opportunities for learning and collaboration. Around 70 of us met last week in Sandy Springs for an Atlanta Jewish Ecosystem meeting themed, “Creating Jewish Spaces.” Then, as a group, we actually created one — a sukkah in the middle of a meeting space. We also had a mini “Learning Journey” about the power of design in public spaces from Gensler, a global architecture, design, and planning firm. If you’ve ever been to Ponce City Market you’ve seen their influence. They deeply believe in making places people live, work, and play more inspiring, more resilient, and more impactful. We rolled right into discussing “problems of practice” — what are the challenges related to creating Jewish spaces in Atlanta. The conversations were robust and would have continued given more time. Don’t miss out, and plan to join us at our next Ecosystem meeting on January 30, 2020.
Compassionate Integrity – What Does That Mean?
We have a few spots left for Compassionate Integrity training, a terrific course on cultivating our highest human values. Among ten key skills you will learn is how to stay in the resilience zone. We can all use ways to do that! The course starts next week, and in the spirit of our ecosystem, it would be great to have an even bigger mix of organizations participate. You can forward the attached flyer to your professionals. It’s especially useful for folks that manage teams but open to all. We will hold the last spots open until Friday so please respond soon.

The ZingTrain is coming to Atlanta
Zingerman’s Deli, in Ann Arbor, MI is famous for excellent customer service, along with their towering reuben sandwiches! Now their ZingTrain program is coming to Atlanta to train representatives from our Jewish organizations in the art of radically welcoming customer service. We’re offering a full day of training on either November 6 or November 7, and you can send up to two representatives from your organization. Be on the lookout for your invitation! Let’s see if we can build whole neighborhoods filled with radically welcoming opportunities.
