Racial Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion

High Holiday Greeter REDI Workshop


Effective greeters can create a congregational culture of belonging for Jews of all backgrounds who enter your doors, whether they're members, prospective members, or visitors. Conversely, lack of a greeting, or the wrong kind of greeting, can unintentionally marginalize individuals and families and signal the exact opposite of what we are aiming to communicate. Come and engage in some simple education around creating an inclusive community from the very beginning.

High Holiday Workshop: Creating Inclusive Programming


The High Holidays are a time when more people than ever are in our buildings and in our zoom rooms. These holy days give our congregations and communities an opportunity to affirm and welcome our members from a wide range of backgrounds, or unintentionally signal that certain individuals are not welcome. Come learn how to ensure your High Holiday planning includes affirming community members of all backgrounds and ensure all of us are able to experience a community of belonging.
