Membership Renewal

June 2021
 
For now the winter is past, the rains are over and gone.  The blossoms are appearing in the land ... Arise, my friend, and let's go forward together."
- Shir HaShirim, 2:11-13
 
Dear Members of the Beth El Family,
 
After the cold and isolation endured over the past months, we are thrilled to increasingly welcome you back to our synagogue campus.  As the summer begins, we turn our thoughts towards the fall, which brings the High Holy Days and openings of our Preschool, Religious School and Adult Education programs. The first step in this process is to ask for your continued support by renewing your synagogue membership.   
 
Despite the myriad of challenges we faced, our community not only endured but continued to flourish throughout the pandemic.  With many thanks to our staff and lay leaders, our early childhood program remained open and in-person for the entire year.  Our religious school seamlessly oscillated between online and in-person learning, highlighted by the tents erected in our parking lot as an outdoor learning space.  Services were held online, in-person and even in cars through drive-thru events.  And perhaps most importantly, our community continued to offer support through externally facing tikkun olam efforts and internally focused care for the vulnerable and needy among us.  Our congregants donated massive amounts of food and supplies, offered rides and errands for one another and even helped dozens of our elderly congregants to secure vaccination appointments.  On behalf of our clergy and staff, we truly feel grateful to call Temple Beth El our home.
 
In the coming weeks, we look forward to providing information for in-person High Holy Day services and activities, as well as protocols to increasingly welcome members of our community safely back into the building.  This process necessarily begins with membership renewal and your commitment towards sustaining our synagogue as a center of Jewish life and learning.  
 
Next week our office will be sending you a statement noting our sustaining membership amount along with the security fee. To renew your membership, please send in your initial payment.

Thank you for making Beth El a priority in your lives.  We look forward to deepening our relationship with you this upcoming year and welcoming you back into the building.

L'Shalom,

Rhonda Regan, TBE President
Rabbi Jonathan Jaffe
Gennifer Kelly, Executive Director
