    Finally, who will be the first person a visitor will meet when entering the building? Renters are responsible for setting up and cleaning up all food, decorations, table settings, and flowers. Churches and synagogues are no different. Wertheimer is too even-handed in his presentation to overtly express concern with this decline, but it is clear from his tone that he regrets many of the trends that he notes. Instead of a weekly announcement sheet, or in addition to that sheet there could be a weekly email about what is happening at the synagogue.

    You can access demographics with regard to where these visitors live, what company provides their internet service, which browser they are using and a host of other details that can be very helpful in planning and updating the website. As it is handed out to members and guests, it is also a public relations tool. Tuition fees for Hebrew School programs are in addition to the membership dues. The first type of class is, as we stated earlier, Hevruta Learning of serious texts.

    New hazzanim are trained to be not just singers, but auxiliary staff members. Fifty years ago, a family would first join a synagogue and then look around to decide in which of the activities to participate. Jews are a diverse people; perhaps we are more diverse today than in any other time in modern Jewish history. Sometimes the rabbi and the cantor just have to get out of the way and let the congregation sing.

If there is a need for contact with political figures, there can be a congregation-wide letter writing program, or maybe a forum featuring information on the issue and inviting political figures to join the event. There was no sign that the entrance had been moved to the other side of the building.

It also freed me up to come down from the bima and speak from the floor of the sanctuary for a more informal discussion on Shabbat. The issue is not simply having a program; it needs to be a GOOD program! There is no reason that someone new to the service should have to be a stranger twice.

If your congregation is looking to attract young adults, you need to think like one of them! Visitors should be invited to have some small honor in the service and after the service, they should be able to meet other members, who will show them around, introduce them to the clergy and provide them with information about other synagogue events.

But the size of the room is not the only feature that has changed. A website that is out of date will never get a second look. The dues for singles and those without children are often half the price.

MEMBERSHIP

If you have a core group of members of a particular demographic and want to increase participation in that group, email can be a very effective way to spread the news. Members need to know that strangers should be invited to join them, not shooed away, so they can learn more about the service.

How about hearing assistance for those who are partially deaf, or large print Siddurim for those who are visually impaired, or having one service a month professionally signed for the deaf?

Your website must have accurate and timely information and be updated regularly. This could allow financial resources to be concentrated on people and programs and not on maintenance of a building. Some of us grew up in families that strongly identified as Jews religiously and culturally, some were raised in assimilated secular households, others have come to Judaism as adults.

You are welcome to come and experience our caring community at our Shabbat services and programs open to the public. I have seen Yiddish speaking volunteers have a profound effect on elderly Jews who feel disenfranchised from the world, like they no longer have a place in it.

Life Cycle

I noted before, that in the past, people would join and then look for a way to get involved. The group does not need a teacher unless something within the text stumps the entire group.

Social Networks are often the first place people post their news, both good and bad, and presents many opportunities to hear from, help, and be there for your members. Meetings and adult studies can be held at the homes of members. Our broad range of worship services reflects the rich composition of the congregation.Membership Creating Connections, Reading Oneself In.

We are a spiritual community. At our best, together, what we are about is building relationships, creating connections with each other, and helping each other find renewal and meaning in the midst of an ancient people and far-flung faith.

Agudas Achim is a community built on covenantal relationships. Each and every day we elevate and nourish our minds and souls while building a sacred community. We care about each other, we care about social justice, we care about Israel, and we care about YOU.
