Judaism Your Way
October 29, 2009

I "found" Judaism Your Way and its High Holiday services after becoming dissolutioned with my traditional synagogue which I had attended my entire life. My two children are in interfaith marriages and this inclusive gathering that is full of respect and welcomes the diversity among us, answered the needs of my family. It plays a vital role in the lives of Jews and non-Jews as they relate to Judaism each, in a very personal manner.

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

The manner in which the Rabbi and its stated mission accepts and respects all Jews and conducts itself in a non-judgemental manner that invites participation and introspection.

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

The Rabbi is philosophically "right on" for this organization and the staff is warm and friendly and clearly dedicated to the mission.

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

Continue with its mission in a year round manner in a building without becoming like all the rest of the places of worship---too expensive,and not welcoming to all.

Ways to make it better...

I loved attending the outdoor, botanic garden services but guess that the number of attendees outgrew the garden facility this past year. The tent setting made it very unique and even more spiritual.

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

To continue its mission and expand it to reach more people while not losing the essence of what it is.

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

I'm unclear as to the Rabbi's desire or availability in becoming a part of congretant's lives in times of illness, death, etc.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
