Congregation presidents should promote Biennial at every opportunity, including board and committee meetings. These talking points may prove helpful:
As the largest Jewish gathering in North America-with nearly 5,000 people in attendance-Biennial is a great way to meet others who share your
interest in synagogue life.
Terrific opportunity to immerse yourself in the many facets of Reform Judaism and return to [CONGREGATION NAME] armed with new resources and ideas,
as well as with the enthusiasm and know-how to put them to use strengthening and enriching our spiritual home.
Perfect opportunity to join with others to study, worship, network, sing, dance, share, grow, and celebrate.
We're planning an off-site [GROUP DINNER] on [SATURDAY NIGHT], which will, of course, be a great social event, but also will be an opportunity for
us to strengthen our bonds with each other as members of the [CONGREGATION] family through the shared experience of Biennial.
With learning sessions available on an exceedingly wide range of topics, the Biennial offers how-to's and hands-on learning for all facets of
congregational life from membership and outreach to leadership development, from social justice to social media, and everything in between. It's a great,
cost-effective way for us all to get the knowledge, skills, and "job training" that will better enable us to do our jobs as temple leaders.
Having been to [NUMBER] Biennials before, I can attest to the fact that you'll return home spiritually refreshed, more Jewishly literate, deeply
connected to our Reform Movement (and many of the terrific people you'll meet in San Diego), and with new and creative ideas for us try here at
Great opportunity to connect, network, learn from, share and socialize with peers, fellow leaders, and other [COMMITTEE NAME] chairs in
congregations across North America.
