Building resilient communities – Workshop

Updated: Oct 28, 2021

In the last couple of years, we are seeing an increase in events like natural disasters, acts of terror and antisemitism, and unexpected emergencies in many communities. It is not a question of where. It is a question of when.

To prepare our community, we will be trained by Prof. Mooli Lahad and Dr. Ruvie Rogel, world recognized experts in community resilience, who are coming to us from Israel. During a 12 hour workshop, spread over three days, they will provide you with the tools to prepare, react, and recover from unexpected emergencies. You will learn how to deal with critical situations like floods, fires, prolonged power outages, severe weather, structural collapse, riots, shooting incidents, and domestic violence.

The workshop is designated for only 25 people, and you are one of them.

Every organization will be able to send two participants, one professional staff member (the Executive Director or an Operational director), and one of the organization’s lay leaders (President or the chair of the Security Committee). Should you like to bring more people, please get in touch with me directly.

The Training Goals

  • To introduce the world of resilience to community leaders.

  • To establish a "preparedness culture“ within a core group that will be able to educate others.

  • To create a cohort of emergency managers.

  • To introduce the psychosocial components of resilience.

  • To create interest in implementing resilience management in the community and its institutions.

  • To create the structure for a "Train the Trainer" (TTT) workshop for local professionals.

The workshop will be offered over the weekend of Nov 18-21, 2021, starting with an introduction on Thursday evening, followed by a Saturday night workshop and concluding sessions on Sunday.

Below is the precise schedule:

Thursday 5:00-8:00 PM

Saturday 6:30-9:30 PM

Sunday 9:00-2:00 PM

Location: Main Line Reform Temple, 410 Montgomery Ave, Wynnewood, PA 19096

Target audience: Professionals and lay leaders within the community; select individuals with a strong commitment to building community resilience.

Fee: $250 Per Person

Participants will be provided with written materials (digital), PowerPoint Presentations used during the workshop, and a Personal Protection Kit.

We will help your community build their own emergency risk assessment, plans of action, and how to execute them.

We are looking forward to your participation,
