Overview

What does the Jewish tradition have to say about leadership? It is a central theme of Jewish history and a pressing concern for contemporary Jewish organizational life. From Sanctuary to Boardroom: A Jewish Approach to Leadership examines key Jewish texts on leadership and applies these concepts to today's issues associated with leading and managing organizations. Discussing subjects such as authority, charisma, uses and abuses of power, and shared power, the book offers an understanding of the key classical models of Jewish leadership, helps explicate these models in clear and communicative style, and translates these models into issues and questions which are the core of contemporary concern of existing and future Jewish leaders.
