We Want to Hear What You Think!

An important way to ensure that Congregation Beth Am is continually improving and strengthening itself is by gaining your perspective. We are thrilled to be taking part in the launch of a synagogue survey coordinated through Measuring Success as part of our Union for Reform Judaism membership. We are one of 40 Reform congregations in this cohort.

The purpose of the synagogue survey is to:

  • Help us understand the priorities and needs of our community
  • Create local/national benchmarks against which to measure ourselves
  • Provide input into the process of continuous synagogue improvement and planning

By now, you should have receivee an email inviting you to take the survey. I want to stress the importance of your participation. Our goal is a 100% response rate to ensure that we hear all voices from our community. The data collection, analysis and reporting will be handled by the independent third party, Measuring Success, a consulting firm that works with Jewish organizations (and other non-profits) to develop tools to measure their performance and enact positive change.

Measuring Success will conduct the survey itself and handle all of your survey responses confidentially. Congregation Beth Am will receive an aggregate report of the results and will not have access to individual survey responses (unless you choose to self-identify). We need a minimum of one adult responding per household - but it is important to us that we gather the opinions of everyone in our community, and would prefer that each adult in a household complete the survey on his or her own.

We encourage you to tell us what you think we’re doing right, what we can improve on and what is important to you. Your input is valuable information and we fully intend to act upon the results of this survey. If you don’t tell us, we’ll never know!

Thank you in advance for your participation in this important project.
