I was in the first Selah cohort as an individual, and this year Hazon was one of the groups in the first Selah Cohort for organizations. It is a superb program, and I commend it without hesitation. The staff do a superb job of integrating hard skills with personal and organizational values. Over time, the program is building a shared language amongst participants, and is establishing a strong and important network. Kudos to JFSJ for stewarding the program, to NCF for funding it, and to the Rockwood trainers for outstanding leadership.
