Last November, we began a strategic planning process by asking all of our members to reflect on our community’s mission and priorities. Your responses to that survey, along with targeted focus groups with staff and congregants, provided us with a valuable road map for the work we have been engaged in over the past six months. At the March meeting, our Board of Trustees approved a Strategic Plan for 2019-2022.
We are a community driven by meaning, connection, and purpose, rooted in Reform Jewish values, and animated by our commitment to each other and the world.
Our Strategic Priorities
Temple Shaaray Tefila will be celebrating our 175th anniversary in 2020. Much of the credit for our longevity and success stems from our ability to adapt and continue meeting the evolving needs of our community. As we plan for the future, we’ve identified four Strategic Priorities to drive our mission and strengthen our synagogue during the coming years.
We’ve also identified four Supporting Priorities – additional areas of focus to which we’ll pay special attention as we believe they directly bolster and enhance the impact of our Strategic Priorities.
We, of course, understand and value the importance of every facet of our congregational identity (pastoral care, adult education, Israel engagement, etc). As that work continues, the established priorities will guide and focus us as together we build our future.
