Rabbi Wernick in Canadian Jewish News 
"Rather than asking “How can I get more members in,” I think the core question synagogues have to ask is “How can I get more meaning out?”The change today is if you only worry about membership, you’re not going to get the money or the members. You have to worry about meaning and about how you can understand people’s self-interest, their values, their stories, and organize around what those interests are through a Jewish lens. If you do that, then you build a financial model around it, which is the reverse of what tends to happen today." read more...

A total of 91.8 percent of the 258 kehillot voted yes on the sale, with more than 40 percent of congregations voting.  This turnout was far greater than the New York State Attorney General’s requirement and well beyond the two-thirds approval threshold required to allow the sale to go forward. read more...

Statement on Israeli Election Outcome

After the extreme divisiveness of the current Israeli campaign for Prime Minister, the task that lies ahead for the Jewish People is to create unity in the absence of unanimity. Whether we are happy with the election results or not, what just transpired is democracy in action. Our love and support for Israel transcends political affiliation or religious denomination." read more...
