I’ve been lurking on their email list for years. I’m not from Arkansas, I’m not even Jewish, but I WISH I was a part of this congregation! What a great bunch of people, the world should have MORE folks like them!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their conversations with one another.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

go hide myself somewhere, why change a good thing?

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their love for one another.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

courteous, caring, able to voice opinions without dominating one another.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Applaud happily.

Ways to make it better...

i were there in person.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

People who only see the surface of a thing.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I have a better view of religious people from my experience with them.

Who could imagine a Palestinian general contractor donating his services to build a Jewish temple with two Christian architects? As the fund raising chair for the new building it has been extremely gratifying to see the support of not only our community and temple members but people throughout the USA who believe in what we are doing and support our faith-to-faith initiatives.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting to experience, first hand, the talents and caring of our temple members and the outpouring of enthusiasm and generosity among Jews, Christians and Muslims in our community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptionally talented and ready to donate their time, expertise and money to a common purpose.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

create the kind of dialogue among people of all faiths that would contribute to worldwide peace.

Temple Shalom of Northwest Arkansas is an extended family for all of its members. Like all families, we are diverse, but we love each other even if we don't always agree with each other. The outpouring of support for our construction project has been an overwhelming experience. Our congregation has about 60 member families and yet our donor list contains more than 750 names... I find this remarkable, especially in this economy.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

interactions with people who are strangers to our community. The universal support for our building project has shown us all the best side of all involved.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

ask that the board engage the services of a mediator so that all of our voices could be heard in a non threatening arena and so that there could be equitable energy devoted to the diverse views of our community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being able to contribute to the best of my best abilities.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

generous with their time, energy and skills.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really have an impact on interfaith understanding.

Ways to make it better...

we had started with enough funds to hire a full time publicist and fundraiser.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

coming to terms with the diversity of our views so that we can come to terms with the diversity of the community at large, specifically the community we wish to engage in peaceful dialog.

One thing I'd also say is that...

it is a pleasure to be a part of this amazing project.

This tiny congregation of 60 members in the heart of the Ozarks is building its first ever synagogue with the help of a Palestinian Muslim named Fadil Bayyari and the support of local Christian churches. Mr. Bayyari offered to build our synagogue at his cost as a way to bridge all differences between Muslims and Jews and to provide us with a beautiful house of worship. We have raised over $1.2 million to pay for the synagogue, money that has come from our membership and many community contributions. We worship under the leadership of a part-time rabbi and University of Arkansas Philosophy Professor Jacob Adler. Our congregation is quite representative of the diversity of our area, with Asian and Hispanic members and lots of folks who want to learn more about Judaism. We have held two "Faith to Faith" dinners at area churches which have raised almost $100,000 towards the remaining costs of completing our synagogue. I love beeing a part of a very small group of Jews who have become my family far from my roots in Boston. The involvement of Fadil Bayyari in our efforts to build a home for us is a seed of hope for a peaceful, loving future here in the Ozarks and throughout the world.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being a part of a close and loving community of Jewish individuals and families, very accepting of all.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the friendship and support of all members and the willingness of everyone to pitch in and do his/her part to create a spiritual community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

complete the construction of our synagogue and begin an ongoing series of Faith to Faith classes, conferences and presentations.
