Talks between Temple Emanu-El and Or Chadash - Ambassadors’ Report

For the week of 12/02/2019

The Ambassadors met just prior to Thanksgiving to review our last Town Hall meetings where the Religious School and Facilities Task Forces reported their findings.  Reminder, the final reports and presentations are posted to our synagogue websites.  Along with Rabbi David Fine of the URJ, we discussed the necessary elements to be included in a Memorandum of Understanding and the timeline for it to be prepared for the congregations to review and vote upon by the end of January. 

Our next Town Hall meetings will be on 12/08/2019 – Worship and Clergy, 11:00 – 12:00 at Or Chadash and 1:00 – 2:00 pm at Temple.  Members of each task force will present their findings.  These reports will be distributed in a dedicated email this week, as well as being posted to our websites before the Town Hall meetings.  Our goal continues to be to review and discuss each new report openly and honestly.  This allows our congregants the opportunity to learn more about each topic and to be fully informed before any vote is taken.  


Thank you for the commitment and passion that you bring to this conversation. And please feel free to share your thoughts and comments by writing to our shared email account at
