August 2017 Newsletter


Dear Webmasters:

The High Holidays are next month, and the URJ can help you prepare. The URJ has brand-new holiday resource kits for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur that allow you to share relevant and engaging content from with your members. Request your kit now for both holidays, and let me know where on your site you'd like me to embed them.

The URJ also provides camera-ready ads for your bulletin, website, and social media pages to let your members know when the High Holidays are and how they can find information about them. This High Holiday seating reciprocity form will help your travelling members find services wherever they may go - and you can update your own congregation listing on and to make sure that prospective members or visitors to your area know how to attend your services.

5778 is also a Biennial year! Representatives from more than 300 congregations have already registered for the URJ Biennial 2017, happening in Boston December 6-10. Recruit a delegation from your congregation with ready-to-share graphics and sample language, all available in The Tent. To stay up-to-date on all things Biennial, join the group in The Tent, follow the URJ on Twitter and Facebook , subscribe to Biennial 2017 update emails, and look around the Biennial website. And of course, register yourself!

Don't miss your opportunity to see your congregation on the big screen at Biennial! Submit photos of your congregation's holiday celebrations, social action programs, or anything that demonstrates your community's vibrancy and diversity to the Biennial 2017 photo contest. The grand prize is a digital camera!
