A practical guide for envisioning - and transforming - your synagogue into a powerful new congregation of welcoming, learning and healing. "The new synagogue we envision is a spiritual center for all those who set foot inside it. It is a kehillah kedoshah, a sacred community, where relationships are paramount, where worship is engaging, where everyone is learning, where repair of the world is a moral imperative, where healing is offered, where personal and institutional transformation are embraced. The times are ripe for this spiritual call." - from the Introduction So often we want our congregations to be more - more compelling, more member-focused, more spiritual and yet more useful for our daily lives. Through reflection, examples, tips and exercises - and incorporating the fruits of Synagogue 2000 (now Synagogue 3000), a groundbreaking decade - long program investigating the challenges facing modern synagogues-this inspiring handbook both establishes a sound foundation for why a deep hospitality is crucial for the survival of today's spiritual communities, and dives into the practical hands-on how of turning your congregation into a place of invitation and openness that includes: Prayer that is engaging, uplifting and spiritually moving * Institutional deepening that is possible because of an openness to change * Study that engages adults and families, as well as children * Good deeds - the work of social justice - as a commitment of each and every member * An ambience of welcome that creates a culture of warmth and outreach * Healing that offers comfort and support at times of illness and loss * ...and much more.
