Through the Harry Kay Leadership Series, the Harry Kay Alumni Network (HKAN) seeks to bring in speakers to share new ideas and expertise in the areas of leadership and innovation that are relevant to or rooted in the opportunities and challenges facing Jewish communities today. HKAN hopes to bring forward new ideas around leadership development, practice and innovation for discussion and dissemination throughout our community as well as to introduce new approaches, methods, and tools that can serve as platforms to aid our leadership in building and maintaining vibrant Jewish communities in the Twin Cities.

The Summit includes a session for the general public as well as a specific course for Jewish community professional leaders and clergy.

At this year’s Summit, we welcome Rabbi Sid Schwarz to look at the trends shaping the lives of younger American Jews and hear his four guiding principles to spark a renaissance in Jewish life.
