Responding to Difficult Financial Times

As the financial crisis continues to affect the world's economy, we recognize that, particularly in some communities, it likely will have far reaching implications for congregations and their members. And so, as families do during difficult times, the Union for Reform Judaism is reaching out to remind you that, as always, we are available to provide resources and assistance to support your congregation and members during these difficult times.

The Union is a "congregation of congregations," and so the issues that congregations are facing are facing the Union as well. Key staff and lay leaders are currently looking at projections for the current and next fiscal years, working to assess the impact of the economy on the Union's budget, and to create responses based on those assessments.

We are also aware that the current economic situation will impact our members. Our challenge, as is theirs, is to maintain service to our constituents and stay true to our mission while adjusting to the current economic realities. Please remember your regional MUM representative is always availble to talk with you.

Our tradition tells us that all Jews are responsible for one another. This year, more than ever, we hope our members will find the support they need in their synagogue community.
