Planning TBA's Future

Rabbi Ruth congregational meetingTo ensure a vibrant temple community for many years to come, Temple Beth Am is in the process of developing a strategic plan. The plan will help TBA set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen our operations, ensure that all stakeholders are working toward common goals, and establish agreement around intended outcomes. If you would like to be involved or learn more about this process, please go to our Engagement page.
