THE FORMATION OF A WELCOMING COMMITTEE
What is the image that we now project towards both new and potentially new members entering our synagogue. Are we warm and welcoming ?
If you consider yourself as a good communicator and a “people person”, please read on.
Would you be interested in participating in a new Beit Tikvah welcoming committee that is being formed to welcome and perhaps even “chat it up” with new, potentially new and visiting members and congregants.
Forward your name to volunteer on this committee, on a once a month, basis. Like individuals volunteering to “man” the front door on Shabbat, welcoming is best undertaken on a rotational basis.
Send us all of your suggestions and comments (to email@example.com ) and join with Rabbi Finkelstein and me (Les Breiner) to share your ideas and suggestions, at a date and time yet to be determined. Both men and women are welcome.
FOR A NEW AND POTENTIAL MEMBER, FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE CRITICAL AND WE NEED TO DEMONSTRATE TO THE VISITOR, INDIVIDUAL AND/OR FAMILY, THAT WE ARE A FRIENDLY AND A CARING CONGREGATION.
