Not surprisingly over the past number of months, the word “hybrid” has become popularized to refer to this new world we have entered. We want to make an argument for a new, and more precise term that some congregations have started to use: multi-access.
The URJ offers resources that address the challenges of building sacred partnerships and leading our institutions at this moment in time. We strongly suggest that you take a look at them and begin to apply what makes sense to ensure that you put as much care into how healthy your organization is emotionally as it is physically. Many of these are offered in partnership with movement partners.

Rabbi Rick Jacobs

Rabbi Fred Guttman
