We are living in a time that is unprecedented, and synagogues will be forever changed. The question is what will they look like and how will they be funded once we are on the other side of this crisis. A certain segment of our congregations now realize that they don’t have to have bricks and mortar…or do they? Is it necessary to come to shul during High Holidays or can you have a meaningful experience at home with family and not bother with the parking, the dressing, the hurry to get to synagogue? What can membership, board meetings, services, programs look like now that there is a new genie that has been let out of the bottle called Zoom. We are not yet out of the woods, even with the vaccine roll out and we may not all get to gather – even in the fall of 2021.
Let’s talk and put a plan into action to meet this new set of challenges.
