MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENTS OF SHAARE ZEDEK AND SHAARE ZION BETH-EL

"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much" - Helen Keller


Dear Congregants,

Approximately eighteen months ago, Shaare Zion Beth-El and Shaare Zedek joined forces and formed a collaboration committee. This committee explores opportunities for resource-sharing between the two congregations.

Since then, we have enjoyed successful joint initiatives such as Daily Minyanim,  Kabbalat Shabbat and Yom Tov Services, and educational and social programs. We get stronger attendance every time!

Currently, our respective clergy teams meet on a regular basis to plan for the Chagim and joint Jewish learning opportunities. Going forward, we are exploring other opportunities that reduce duplication and increase overall attendance at synagogue events. What does this look like? Instead of two Purim carnivals for example – or communal seders, or Shavuot ice cream socials – we can plan for a shared celebration. This may not work for every situation, but it is an avenue worth exploring.

We believe the collaboration between Shaare Zedek and Shaare Zion Beth-El synergizes our collective strengths.

This is a unique opportunity, the success of which relies on the support of our valued members. We must be willing to embrace change.

Let us go from Strength to Strength.
