Thanks for participating in our first one-question survey!

Here’s what we found:

When asked what subjects participants wanted to receive education/ resources on in the coming months, we found that overwhelmingly, our readers want to learn more about how they can engage with synagogue members following the push of the High Holidays. Secondarily, readers were interested in learning about how to handle dues structures and collections in a world where the pandemic has disrupted all our normal models.

We so appreciate you all taking the time to take our one-question survey and we will tailor future content to address those needs!

Stay tuned for our next issue of Leadership Connections for the next survey.
