Here at the Forward, we had a big dream. What if we could serve as a clearinghouse for basic information about synagogue life across this country, from older, established institutions to newer independent minyanim and spiritual communities? What if we could create a crowd-sourced compilation of data that will serve as a resource to readers nationwide and offer synagogues of all shapes, sizes and denominations a chance to share their story? And so, our ‘synagogue guide’ was born.

To help navigate such moments, Jewish Action asked seasoned teachers and experts for guidance on how to work toward mastery in ten different areas—and in the process, how to become better Jews. Here are their answers.
