Town and Village Synagogue
October 30, 2009

T & V is a most warm and welcoming place. As a place of Jewish observance, it couples a great spiritual tradition with highly egalitarian and participatory services. As a place of Jewish community, it offers compelling opportunities for learning, tzedakah (charity), and social action. It felt like home to me and my family from the first time we stepped in the door.

The Great!

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

. . . establishing a monthly service and dinner for the largely unaffiliated young Jewish community that seeks a greater spiritual connection.

Ways to make it better...

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

. . . find the funds to hire an Executive Director who could help organize and channel congregational resources.

More feedback

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

. . . learning how to read Hebrew and chant Torah, thus participating in and continuing an age-old tradition and mitzvah.

Ways to make it better...

. . . there were more funding and administrative support for the boundless energy and volunteerism of this community.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I've served in many ways, but most rewardingly, as the co-chair of a committee that organized events and services designed to reach out to unaffiliated Jews and to renew and deepen religious ties both within and beyond the congregation.
