The membership committee is concerned with outreach and encouraging individuals and families who are non-affiliated to consider joining Am Haskalah.
Our Membership Committee oversees three areas:
1) Outreach–we let unaffilated Jewish members of the community and new families who move here know about what we offer and encourage them to explore our congregation. We also hold free High Holiday services every year and offer a place to anyone who is looking to celebrate the New Year. We have become involved in “Public Space Judaism” with programs such as Passover in The Aisles, Havdalah at Musikfest, and having a booth at Pride in The Park to reach out to those who may not have any other connection to the Jewish community. Interested in meeting new people and reaching out? Call us!
2) Events/Holidays–we assist individual volunteers with hosting or leading celebrations/events such as our Tu B’Shvat Seder, Hannukah Party, bus trip, and annual picnic. Our Shabbat Coordinator helps bring music, poetry, and other special touches to our Friday night services. Interested in leading a special event, talk on a topic of interest, showing a film, or teaching a cooking class? We welcome your ideas and talents.
3) Communications– we make sure to get the word out about our regularly scheduled services and special events. Have skills with social media, graphic arts, photography, marketing? We need you!
