Shalom, and Chodesh Tov from the relatively quiet month of Tammuz. This month we build on last month’s theme of mission and vision, by going one step further to discuss how our big mission and vision is translated into helpful aims and objectives. Whatever inspiring mission we are involved in, the critical phase is how it is realized in the daily work that we do and that requires us to think and plan carefully.
Yesod spoke with Colin Bulka, Director of JDC Hungary, an experienced Jewish community professional and educator, who shares his experience and theories in this month’s podcast exploring the whys, whats and hows of setting aims and objectives. Listen to Colin’s podcast together with your team and use our Sefaria source sheet to study Jewish texts about the importance of having shared aims.
