The Rabbinic Role in Organizational Decision-Making

By David A. Teutsch

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), 1999

In this chapter of Board-Staff Relations for the 21st Century, the author looks at contemporary rabbinic roles in organizational decision-making. The author first asserts that rabbinic positions involve several elements such as the scholar-adjudicator role, the maggid-teacher-prophet role and the administrator-facilitator role among other examples. The author goes on to examine how these roles could appear within organizations and how it can affect the decision-making process. By looking at these different models, the author concludes that decision-making processes should be made in light of the variety of variables such as the institution's history and the status of the relationship between the organization and the rabbi. The author adds that concerns associated with the changing and evolving role of the rabbis should be revisited frequently.
