Because I just received a note from a wonderful local Jewish family who just joined Temple Emanu-El.
We have received lovely and generous emails and phone messages from many folks at Temple Emanu-El, thank you thank you all so much for welcoming us, very much looking forward to seeing and meeting and getting to know each of you!! My husband had a side conversation at work with someone, and found out that they also belong to Temple Emanu-El. We are excited about all the new and terrific things happening, have a good week!”
To their delight, since they joined TE last week, they have discovered that they have many friends who are already members here.
Their motivation for joining us as new members was so that they could live a deeper, more beautiful, and more meaningful life through their Judaism.
Temple Emanu-El is their avenue, and we are thrilled to welcome them!
As you know, new members are vitally important to the energy and health of our synagogue.
I would ask you to take a moment to think of folks in your life who would do great at TE, approach them as to why you are enthused about Temple Emanu-El, and then make an introduction to me (or any of our clergy).
This is going to be an incredible year, why not include your family and friends?
Please note, that we have two Friday night Shabbat services especially intended for you to bring folks who would potentially be interested in learning more about Temple Emanu-El. These will be excellent. The dates are August 17th HERE and August 24th HERE.
Additionally, we have various evenings set aside for intimate wine and cheese meet & greet settings at congregant homes. If you have friends whom you think would enjoy this type of intimate setting to get to know us and our congregants, please feel free to contact our Membership Chair, Andrea Levy firstname.lastname@example.org .
My thanks to you in advance for taking the time to help us find other amazing people to be part of our growing congregation.
