Tools for Shuls is a blog by Rabbi Hayim Herring who is using the content for writing a book to be published by The Alban Institute entitled Tools for Shuls: A Guide to Make Over Your Synagogue. In the spirit of innovation and community, this blog gives you a chance to comment on the posts, which he will use to shape the book. While the book has the title “synagogue” in it, anyone who works in churches and non-profit organizations, and cares about subjects like engaging volunteers, organizational change and non-profit leadership, will find the blog valuable.
