Membership lies at the heart of our congregations, and Outreach is a
vehicle for nurturing and sustaining vibrant, growing sacred
communities. Our charge is to help our 324 congregations in the East to:
attract and recruit new members; integrate all members into the life of
the congregation and retain them; welcome those unfamiliar with Reform
synagogue life including new Jews, the intermarried, those who have not
found a welcoming home in other streams of Judaism, and the
unaffiliated; and encourage lifelong membership.
