Annual Meeting

Tuesday, June 4 at 7:00pm | Temple Beth El

Join us as we recap the year at our Congregational Annual Meeting! It’s a time to come together as a community, reflect on our journey, and look forward to the exciting opportunities ahead.

Temple leadership will share reflections on the past year’s achievements and unveil their vision for the vibrant programs, events, and initiatives planned for 2024-2025. We’ll also dive into the financial results from 2023-2024 and discuss the proposed budget for the upcoming year.

But it’s not just about reports and approvals – it’s about community. This is your chance to be part of the conversation, vote for a new slate of board members, and help shape the future of Temple Beth El.

After the meeting, join us for a sweet celebration! Indulge in delicious ice cream sundaes as we welcome our incoming Officers and Board of Directors.

Revealing Our Vision For the Future

After over a year of thoughtful research, analysis, and collaboration, including more than 20 congregational listening sessions, our Board and Strategic Planning Committee, we are ready to report back on our strategic framework for the next several years! Be among the first to hear about our strategic vision for the future. 

 

This roadmap reflects the aspirations we heard from you, and we want you to be a part of our special work as we move forward together.  

 

In discussing our plans for next year, our Board will also present a balanced budget for next year that includes initial investments under our new plan.
