Temple Beth El of Northern Westchester
- Advertise and highlight upcoming social action opportunities.
- Encourage congregants to jumpstart the new year with social justice opportunities.
Focusing heavily on social action for the High Holiday season, Congregation Beth El combined their social action themed sermon with an easily accessible sign up sheet located on the back of their tickets. Six different programs were offered including: immediate purchase of turkeys for the Thanksgiving Turkey Drive, Homebound Seniors Project, Passover Food Package Delivery, Family Mitzvah Day events and the Joint Heritage Seder. The congregation also encouraged attendance of the upcoming National Consultation on Conscience.
The use of High Holiday tickets as sign-up tool for social action projects eliminated hours of gathering information and paperwork and complemented the social-action themed services.
