Kress, Jeffrey S.; Cohen, Steven M.; Davidson, Aryeh
Journal of Jewish Education, v73 n3 p191-207 Sep 2007
Successful career development involves balancing the values and expectations held by oneself and by others regarding one's position and the roles played as part of the position. Due to the nature of their work, rabbis face special challenges with regard to balancing professional roles and expectations. Results from a study of Conservative rabbis are reported here, including the variety of roles played by rabbis, the value and expectations placed by rabbis regarding each of these roles, and his or her perception of the value and expectations placed by lay leaders on these roles. Implications related to rabbinic identity and education are discussed. (Contains 2 charts and 2 tables.)
