David S. Wolfman Consulting: The Human Side of Change.

Get help with your change


Founded to help you embrace change and move forward toward new possibilities.

It’s human nature to avoid change in order to avoid conflict. By avoiding that change, however, you can be creating the very conflict you want to avoid. I can guide you though the daunting and exciting process of Change and Transition, even when those changes may involve the highest levels of conflict.

I have served the Jewish community for over 30 years and have been blessed to be in a network of the brightest and most creative professionals in the field. I have formed a complex and comprehensive network of resources who freely share expertise, learning and, when appropriate, cross referral.

It has been my privilege to help hundreds of individuals and organizations find a way forward through my extensive professional training and real-world experience. I am proud of my results and I look forward to assisting you.

Hear It Firsthand from Those Who Know Best:

“David has been an incredible coach to me throughout this year. He has incredible wisdom and insight into the synagogue, how it function, my role, board roles, mission, vision and more. Not only does he understand the the big picture, he is extraordinary at building a process with me for getting from where my congregation is to where our congregation wants to be. I am grateful for his time, wisdom and expertise!”


“Rabbi Wolfman’s soft and thoughtful demeanor combined with his wisdom and insights were extremely helpful to our community. From the very beginning of our process he was accessible and flexible. I would highly recommend Rabbi Wolfman to effect change in your community.”

Rabbi Michael Pincus

Senior Rabbi, Congregation Beth Israel, West Hartford, CT

“David is a person of enormous talent and even greater integrity. I recommend him in the most complex, most delicate cases of congregational system dysfunction. I trust his judgment and rely on his experience. In his area of expertise, developing symbiosis and synergy between rabbinic and volunteer leaders, I know of no one I better than David. If I were in difficulty as a congregational rabbi, I would put myself in his hands.”

Jan Katzew

Professor, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Cincinnati, OH

“Once again, David showed me his strength as a rabbi, leader, listener and facilitator during a crisis in confidence at our synagogue. With his stories, charts and explanation, he was able to lower the tension in the room so our members and lay leadership could listen to each other. Our movement is so fortunate to have Rabbi Wolfman as one of its leaders. Thanks again for your warmth, caring and assistance as we move through this transition.”

Rick Shrier

Past President of Congregation B’nai Shalom Westborough, MA; Trustee, Union for Reform Judaism

“There is no one who understands the issues of transition in the non-profit setting than David. He brings sensitivity and keen insight to both professional and volunteer leadership so that the organization can go through some of the most difficult transitions is the most effective way.”
