With the pandemic keeping so many of our community members away from our synagogues, it is imperative that we think together as a community to re-imagine the synagogue experience in a way that excites and motivates members to return. At the same time, it is important to use creative messaging strategies to reignite the passion in our community members to reconnect to our synagogues. It is especially important to focus on engaging all segments of our community, including youth, women and seniors who have had even fewer outlets over the course of the pandemic to re-engage in synagogue life. We hope to partner with you to remind our community members of the beauty that can only occur in the context of a Beit Kenesset. We urge you to consider implementing programs that appeal to a variety of different demographics whether they be focused on social interaction, tefillah, chesed or learning. We also encourage communities to work together on joint proposals that may be implemented in multiple synagogues and cities.
Through this grant initiative we hope to create a centralized resource bank, sharing your ideas with the entire North American community, so that we can all benefit from the innovation emanating from within our Kehillot.
