Reply To: After taking this course, in your own words, please define Hebraic leadership and what it means to you.

Deneisha Hollis

After receiving the in depth information about Hebraic leadership it allowed me to consider my own purpose as a leader and how it intersects with religion. I believe that in many cases Jewish people in Israel have been able to navigate this ideal in their own communities. It means that we should be able to apply our religious beliefs to our social, economical, political, and personal lives. It signifies that we should use our religious text to bring us closer to God and the envisioned kingdom that is planned for us. As a leader we should help guide others to a better understanding of scripture and how we should live our lives following closely to the commandments. As a believer it is my job to continue to use the words written thousands of years ago to help remain a faithful servant. Leadership ties into being a faithful servant of the Lord and I believe that is what Hebraic leadership enables many to do. I feel as if in America we should use these practices to bring people closer together and to not try to separate our leaders from their faith.
