“Crystal balls are hard to find. But I know where to find one. When I want to see into the future of what is possible and what is needed, I continually turn to Hayim Herring. His books have been on my syllabi to prepare clergy and educators for tomorrow. Most recently, his voice, and his ability to listen in between the lines, inspired a group of lay leaders and clergy from our community to foster inter-generational community. It is always a privilege to work with a mensch who is so darn smart.”

“This past December we were very fortunate to have Rabbi Hayim Herring serve as a scholar in residence for the Metropolitan Detroit Jewish Community. While in Detroit, Hayim had the opportunity to share his wisdom and vision for 21st-century congregations over several learning sessions with our Michigan Board of Rabbis, congregational presidents and lay leaders, Federation lay leaders and staff, and congregational school directors of education. Our leadership was intrigued with Hayim’s ideas for how to move congregations from operating like closed organizations to functioning more as open platforms. As our leadership struggle with the challenges (and opportunities) facing our rapidly changing Jewish community, it was a wonderful treat to learn with Hayim and gain new insights into how to create vibrant congregations. Hayim proved himself to be a masterful educator and visionary leader for congregational change.”

Rabbi Herring is thoughtful, collaborative, strategic, engaging and inspiring. His practical insights and vast experience helps to strengthen Jewish communal institutions in the 21st century.”

“After learning from Hayim Herring in the STAR Foundation’s PEER fellowship I made sure to invite him to serve as a guest speaker in my former congregation’s “Visions of the Jewish Future” series. Hayim was illuminating, entertaining and insightful. He shaped a discussion on envisioning what can take place in the synagogue of the 21st century that lasted for a long time after his session concluded. Hayim continues to serve as a mentor, role model and motivator for me in my personal and professional life.”
