Vision Team Launches

"People are yearning for meaning. People want to be heard." This sentiment from one of our Vision Team members summed up our experience at our Vision Teamlaunch earlier this month. 
 

Over 60 Vision Team members engaged in rich dialogue, addressing, among other things, "who we are," and "who we could be." A wide range of topics were discussed, from what it means to be a "Conservative" synagogue by today's standards (and what will it mean in the future) to how to address the continual rise in Interfaith marriage. We focused on the needs of our youngest to oldest constituents within the context of being one diverse community. 

Now we want to hear from you with your ideas of how to shape our future!  One of the important accomplishments of the Vision Team launch was to articulate the core questions our Journey inquiry must explore. One form of our exploration will be "Listening Forums" -- 2-3 hour forums where you convene the conversations you think are most important to the future of Beth El.  

On Sunday, February 11th (time TBD), we will hold our first "Listening Forum," which will be open to our entire congregation. This will be an opportunity for you to express your hopes and dreams for Beth El. A list of all Listening Forums and events can be found at bethelnr.org/journey/schedule, which will be updated regularly.

We look forward to seeing and hearing from you over the next few months! Please watch these two short video testimonials below to get a better sense of the VisionTeam launch from two fellow congregants. More information will follow on our Journey web page. Please stay connected so we may take this Journeytogether! Feel free to engage us at this email address (journey@bethelnr.org).  

Happy New Year!
