Dear friends,

Many months ago, we embarked on the task of developing a strategic plan for Congregation Etz Chaim. Our strategic plan helped us brainstorm and develop our on-going mission, purpose and goals. We also identified how we would assess these achievements beyond the immediate future, to ensure the future of our congregation.

Click here for a copy of the strategic plan, as well as short videos which will further elucidate the contents of the plan. Please join us virtually on Tuesday, January 26 at 7:30 PM for a Strategic Plan Forum. This is an opportunity to come and ask questions, weigh in, or otherwise learn more about the document. Please watch for the Zoom information.

Sincerely,
Rabbi Andrea Cosnowsky
