Membership Renewal

July 2022

Dear Members of the Beth El Family,
 
As we recently shared, our congregation is currently experiencing a period of dramatic growth and transformation. We are excited that Rabbi Jaffe has made a long-term commitment to Beth El and that we are embarking upon the search process to hire an additional rabbi to join Rabbis Jaffe, Linzer and Cantor Sternlieb. With record numbers of Early Childhood Center and Religious School students, Temple Beth El continues to thrive as a center of Jewish living and learning for Northern Westchester. And with the hope that Covid will continue to abate in its impact on our daily lives, we look forward to seeing you in person often at our newly revitalized campus, beginning with our summer outdoor services in the Klein Courtyard. Please stop by and say hello!   
 
With great excitement and anticipation, 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.   
 
Your support enables us to fulfill our vision of providing a center for vibrant and engaging Judaism here in Northern Westchester. Despite the myriad of challenges we faced throughout Covid, our community not only endured but continued to flourish. With many thanks to our staff and lay leaders, our ECC program remained open and in-person for the entire year. Our Religious School seamlessly transitioned from our outdoor tent campus in the fall to indoor classes over the course of the year. We continued to hold in-person services and learning sessions, with livestream options for those who preferred to engage remotely. And perhaps most importantly, our community coordinated its support through our tikkun olam efforts. Our congregants helped to resettle Afghan refugees here in Westchester, collected and donated supplies for Ukraine and held food drives for the needy, just to name a few initiatives. On behalf of our clergy and staff, we are truly 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, Religious School enrollment updates and our Adult Education calendar. This process necessarily begins with membership renewal and your commitment towards sustaining our synagogue. Beth El remains committed to basing our dues on the costs of operating our temple; our Annual Fund is designed to fundraise throughout the beginning of our year to fill the gap between revenue and expenses and assist those in our community who can’t afford membership and/or full tuition. 
 

  • Statements will be sent via email in early July, noting our sustaining membership amount along with the security fee. 
  • Members can log onto ShulCloud to see and pay their bill, as well as enroll their children in school. Use our website, www.bethelnw.org, to access ShulCloud.  
  • Membership is renewed with your first payment which we hope you will make by August 15.  If for any reason your family will not be renewing your membership this year, please reach out to Gennifer at GKelly@bethelnw.org

Thank you for making Beth El a priority in your lives. We look forward to deepening our relationship with you this upcoming year.
 
L'Shalom,
 
Rhonda Regan, TBE President
Rabbi Jonathan Jaffe
Gennifer Kelly, Executive Director
