Dear Fellow Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El Members, 
As we embark on the next chapter in our community’s journey, I am thrilled to share with you our recently crafted Strategic Plan. This comprehensive roadmap outlines our vision, goals, and actionable steps for the coming years.

When we began this process over a year ago, we had no idea how much the world around us would change. The tragedy of October 7th and the ongoing struggles in Israel will always be close to our hearts. We also recognize the further increase in antisemitism, which impacts our thoughts in making sure we play our role in the safety and survival of the Jewish people.

While recent events can bring terrible discomfort, I am inspired by the strength and resilience of the Jewish community broadly, and of the Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El community specifically. The need for TBH-BE is more essential than ever, as we continue to strive to be a place where we come to support and enrich each other at all points in our lives.

Members of the Board of Directors and the community always hear me talk about the challenges and opportunities of growth. Our Strategic Planning Committee took this to heart as they executed a disciplined and focused process to help us prioritize our pursuits, endeavors and goals in the coming years. I am profoundly thankful for the outstanding leadership of Jodi Miller, Len Feldman, Rabbi Witkovsky, Ken Krivitzky, Barb Bookman, and the entire committee.

While many Conservative synagogues grapple with the implications of shrinking membership and corresponding budget constraints, we find ourselves in a fortunate position. We are actively exploring the best ways to serve our growing community and provide meaningful experiences across a wide range of backgrounds and observance levels.

We are excited that we have already begun the process of adding another clergy member to our leadership team. Additionally, there are numerous tasks yet to be accomplished that are outlined in the subsequent pages. Our goal is to make sure this document becomes an instructional guide for the leadership of the synagogue and the community over the next few years.

At the heart of our congregation lies a commitment to fostering spiritual growth, inclusivity, and meaningful connections. Let us continue to build a vibrant and resilient community together.

Thank you for your unwavering dedication to Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El.
