Lunch & Learn: Understanding and Preparing for Synagogue Change
May 6, 2021 @ 12:00 pm
Even before the COVID pandemic, American Judaism had begun to change. The 20thcentury model of broadly supported community-based synagogues was facing challenges from new models, as well as striking demographic and cultural shifts. The pandemic, by putting almost all Jewish gatherings online, accelerated this transformation. Almost all traditional elements of synagogue organization, such as membership and dues, now demand reconsideration. In this hour, Rabbi Amy and Nat will discuss these national changes and the ways that Ohavi Zedek must and will adapt in order to thrive in a transformed world.
