Letter from Synagogue President

Read a letter from synagogue president Jody Katzner about the outcome of a very important discussion and non-binding vote that took place at our December Board of Trustees meeting regarding moving away from our traditional, dues-based membership model, and towards a philanthropy-based model.  This letter was mailed to all congregants the week of December 14. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Jody Katzner.


With the support of a generous donor, the synagogue is now streaming programs and services from The David J. Moskowitz Sanctuary and Nickman Chapel.
