General registration for the URJ Biennial 2017, to be held in Boston, December 6-10, will open next week! The Biennial website will be updated weekly as programs are confirmed, and major news will be shared first in the Biennial 2017 group in The Tent. If you haven't joined The Tent, the URJ's online community portal for congregational leaders, join today! Biennial updates will also be shared on the URJ's Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, so don't forget to follow us.
To help you spread the word, Biennial ads for your congregation's bulletin and social media pages are now available in The Tent! This year, they include extra space where you can overlay your own information. We hope these are helpful to you as you recruit members to your congregation's Biennial delegation.
Want to win prizes and see your congregation on the big screen at Biennial? Enter the Biennial 2017 photo contest! Submit photos of your congregation's holiday celebrations, social action programs, or anything that demonstrates the vibrancy and diversity of your community. The grand prize is a digital camera!
Please help me congratulate this congregation who has gone live recently:
