Congregation Beth Shalom embarked on a strategic planning process in spring 2018, and began work in earnest in the fall. Through this approximately year-long process, we sought to better understand the recent evolution of the synagogue since its last plan was developed in 2008, identify current strengths and weaknesses, and highlight a set of priority recommendations and actions to implement over the next five years. We took an approach oriented towards continuity, recommending ways for Beth Shalom to continue to be and do all of the things our current members expect. This plan represents the collective work of dozens of synagogue leaders, supported by professional staff, and provides a framework for Beth Shalom to adapt and thrive in the near-term and for decades to come. Here now is the completed Strategic Plan.
