With the guidance of outside experts, our diverse, 50-person CoB team synthesized what we heard from listening deeply to 1000+ members of our congregation and arrived at four Pillars of Belonging listed below. These Pillars express WHO we are and HOW we operate as a community. We will achieve a deeper Culture of Belonging by each acting in ways that bring these Pillars to life. 

We have already begun doing that by anyone in the community making quick changes where possible, experimenting with new ideas and initiatives, and, where needed, working to implement systemic changes throughout Temple Sinai. The Staff, Board of Trustees, and Committee Chairs have had an opportunity to explore and determine ways that we can each begin to incorporate the Pillars of Belonging into our individual roles. As well, these groups, along with a newly-formed CoB “Culture Team will rely on the Pillars to help set congregational priorities, identify gaps, allocate resources, support our collective efforts, and help ensure accountability.

We are excited to see what it will look and feel like at Temple Sinai as we each take responsibility for deepening our congregation’s Culture of Belonging together. With all of you, we look forward to creating an even stronger and more relational community in the year and years ahead.
