My synagogue doesn't have any harassment or 'what to do if someone does bad shit' policies. Trying to correct that.

Does anyone have resources/examples/etc so I can put a good draft in front of the board?

Good question!

I'm gonna bet there's some Reformed, Reconstructionist, or Renweal synagogue that has this.

...just ran a web search, gonna read some of the results and post them!

An awful short document from the Conservative folks

uscj.org/assets/resources/Stan

A vague one from another synagogue

bethdavid.com/code-of-conduct.

A document from the Humanists
humanisticrabbis.org/ahr-code-

Some thoughts while searching this.

1) Why so little reconstructionist stuff??

2) I was surprised not even Sha’ar Zahav in SF had a CoC!

3) Maybe I"m searching the wrong term? Is there a better term than Code of Conduct?

4) Maybe this is self-evident?

Re #1, similar. I have a meeting with someone from the official recon parent organization next week and will be bringing this up.

Re #3, harassment policy is the standard business term, sometimes grievance policy.

Re #4, the reason I'm doing this is because after a nasty incident in June, the synagogue admin said to me that she thought she 'just had to put up with' shit that had been going on years. (1/2)

When I bitched out to person pulling the shit, everyone backed me up and was glad that SOMEONE had finally said SOMETHING.

Moral of the story: often harassment is self evident and folks know it is bad, that doesn't mean anyone knows what to do about it when it happens.
