Vision 2020: Beth Shalom's Strategic Planning

In August 2016, Beth Shalom's Board of Director's accepted Vision 2020: Beth Shalom's Strategic Plan as our shul's "road map" for the next 5 years. The Plan was formally announced over the High Holidays, and is now posted on Beth Shalom's website (the appendices are available on request).  

The Plan includes a number of specific actions in the following key areas:

Build a more socially engaged and welcoming community 

Enhance Jewish Learning 

Create a more caring and just community 

You may be thinking, what about fundraising? what about growing our membership? what about the condition of our building? These and other issues were also identified as requiring attention over the coming years. The Board is involved in current or planned efforts to address these issues. 

However, the Strategic Plan focuses on issues that emerged as most important to our members' lives. We feel that by continuing to build a socially engaged, Jewishly literate, participatory and caring community, we will also strengthen membership, create new fundraising opportunities, etc. 

I have joined the Board of Directors with the responsibility of overseeing implementation of the Strategic Plan. I look forward to this challenge and to our continued success. Please contact me, through the synagogue office (780-488-6333), to let me know how you would like to get involved as we put the Plan into action.

On behalf of the Steering Committee, thanks to all those who participated on the Task Forces, engaged in the other planning exercises we carried out, and provided input along the way. Your contributions have allowed us to clarify the priorities and dreams of our congregation.

With very best wishes,

James Mallet

Co-Chair, Vision 2020 Steering Committee
