Learn more about this exciting new platform, where Reform congregational leaders connect with colleagues and peers who have similar concerns, interests and responsibilities.
As summer looms, congregational leaders are thinking about how to welcome potential members into our synagogues. What do they see when they visit our websites? What do they hear when they call the temple office? Who do they meet when they walk through the lobby during their first visit? How can we give everyone who walks through our doors the gift of audacious hospitality?
Find answers to these questions and others in the first-ever YamJam in The Tent, the URJ’s online communication and collaboration forum, on Wednesday, May 6th, at 2:30 p.m. EDT. Hosted by the URJ, in partnership with the National Association for Temple Administration (NATA) and the Program and Engagement Professionals of Reform Judaism (PEP-RJ), this event will offer an opportunity for congregational leaders and Movement experts to discuss ways our congregations can demonstrate audacious hospitality –not only to new members, but to anyone who comes through the synagogue doors.
What is a YamJam, you ask? It’s a moderated, live Q&A session on a particular topic – in this case, membership – that is open to all members of The Tent, the URJ’s online communication and collaboration forum. YamJams allow participants to connect with other congregational leaders in a real-time, 30-minute format to share topical information, ideas, and expertise of interest to all in attendance.
No reservations or special software needed. Just bring your ideas, suggestions, and questions, and plan to join us in the Membership group in The Tent on May 6th at 2:30 p.m. EDT. In the meantime, if you have questions about this YamJam, email us. We look forward to seeing you there!
