Strategic Planning Process

Beth Israel is actively planning for the future through its Strategic Planning Process. Launched in January 2020 and conducted in conjunction with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, Strategic Planning will ensure that Beth Israel is well-positioned to grow and thrive moving forward, not only to meet the needs of our current members, but to attract new members as well.
 
Based on analysis and integration of quantitative Beth Israel Fact Book data, Board and Congregational Survey responses, and Community Conversation input, Strategic Planning Task Forces are addressing the following seven areas:
o   Financial Stability
o   Schools and Youth Programming
o   Membership/Engagement
o   Facility Usage
o   Social Programming
o   Social Action/Community Involvement
o   Marketing & Communications
 
In total, 60 congregants are involved in the Task Force work, along with all of Beth Israel’s professional staff and clergy.
 
Initial drafts of Task Force Reports are due October 1. Reports will include:
o   Vision Statement(s)
o   SWOT (Strengths/Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis to identify issues requiring strategies
o   Recommended strategies and related action plans
 
Beth Israel’s Strategic Plan should be complete by the end of 2020. At that time it will be subject to review by the Board of Trustees. Once approved, it will be presented to the entire congregation early in 2021.
