Committee questionnaire

2018-19 Committee questionnaire

Dear Committee Chair,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Temple’s Executive Committee to ask your assistance in obtaining information about the current status of your committee and activity of your committee during the past fiscal year (July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019). The Board of Trustees recognizes the major contributions that the activity of our committees add to the strength of our congregation. As a member of the Executive Committee, I have been charged to complete a study of all actively listed committees at Beth Israel to identify their membership, goals, activities, budgetary requirements, and to define their purpose. Our goal is to enhance and further strengthen the involvement of our members in our congregational community and to determine whether the description of each committee is still consistent with congregational objectives as reflected in our Bylaws.

Our hope is that at the end of our study, we will be able to make recommendations regarding committee organization and purpose that will be in concert with the goals, priorities, and strategic plan of Beth Israel.

I am attaching a brief questionnaire and ask that you complete and return it by Friday, August 9. The information that you provide will be valuable in making sure we not only are able to accurately communicate the role of each committee to our congregants but also increase our sensitivity to the interests and activities that our committees feel are important.

Thank you in advance for your assistance in providing the requested information.

Marsha Stein

Vice President, Beth Israel

The Hurricane Harvey Flood Fund

Hurricane Harvey left Houston and surrounding areas in a shambles, but the great people of Houston are banding together to help and heal. Your help is welcome and needed. You may send Gift Cards (Kroger, Target, HEB, Lowe’s, or Visa/Mastercard, etc.) to Congregation Beth Israel. They will be immediately distributed to area neighbors to assist in replacing essential items and children’s school supplies.

You may also Donate directly to Congregation Beth Israel by clicking here. All funds will go directly to aid those who need immediate help. These funds will NOT be held to be allocated later. On behalf of our clergy (Rabbi David Lyon, Rabbi Adrienne Scott, Rabbi Joshua Herman, Rabbi Chase Foster, and Cantor Trompeter), David Scott, Executive Director, and Bruce Levy, Temple President, we are very grateful for your kindness, generosity, and help.

Hurt has no shame and no label; we just need to heal one another.

Rabbi David Lyon
