While Adath has a vibrant daily
minyan, we still occasionally struggle
to meet the required quorum of ten
adult Jews. The daily minyan is
extremely important to mourners and
individuals who are observing a
yahrzeit as well as those who are
seeking the spiritual comfort of prayer
in a welcoming community. With this
new system of dividing the congrega-
tion into 52 groupings to receive re-
quests for specific weeks, we hope to
ensure the vibrancy of our minyan. Of
course we encourage you to attend
minyan at any time, with or without an
e-mail request.
Our new ―Minyan Maker‖ program is
modeled after a successful program
developed by Rabbi Micah Peltz at
Temple Beth Shalom in Cherry Hill,
New Jersey. Rabbi Peltz grew up at
Adath and is the son of our members

Welcoming Place (Hachnasat Orchim): We are a warm, welcoming congregation that promotes inclusion and
participation while valuing diversity. We embrace welcoming as an important Jewish value and a responsibility
shared by all as we support each other throughout all stages of life, and in times of joy and times of need.

Connectedness (K’sharim): Judaism is grounded in community. We will connect with one another through a
rich variety of opportunities that foster smaller communities, engaged in our congregation, reflecting the commit-
ment to our mission and values.

Education (Chinuch): Education is the foundation for a committed Jewish life. We will provide a lifelong contin-
uum of quality Jewish learning opportunities to congregants of all ages, abilities and means through a combina-
tion of our own resources and that of our community partners.

Teen Involvement (Noar): We value our teens and seek to engage them in congregational life. We will foster a
sense of belonging and spiritual fulfillment among our teens and remove barriers to full participation in everyday
Jewish life. We will provide leadership and financial support, creative programming, and will welcome teen input
into congregational committees.

Israel (Yisrael): Our commitment to the Land, the People and the State of Israel is steadfast. We will provide
and promote opportunities for congregants to experience, visit, and learn more about Israel and will maintain a
strong connection with the Masorti Movement and Magen Avraham, our sister congregation in Omer. We will
strongly advocate for pluralism and tolerance in Israel and will model this by being respectful of differing points of

Shabbat (Shabbat Kodesh): We inspire our members to experience the beauty and holiness of Shabbat, re-
specting tradition and offering an innovative array of Shabbat experiences. We recognize that Shabbat is cele-
brated in the synagogue, the home and other places.

Conservative Judaism (Tenuah): We model what it means to be a leading Conservative Jewish congregation,
fully engaged with our national organizations as they reshape our movement.

Financial Commitment (Kemach): We will take a leadership role in developing resources that reduce financial
barriers to participation in congregational activities and in the broader Jewish community.

Technology (Technologia): We are committed to utilizing and expanding current and new technologies in order
to extend our presence beyond the physical building.

Mentoring (Hadracha): As congregants journey through a life dedicated to Torah, Avodah, and Gemilut
Hasadim, we will provide mentors to welcome newcomers and increase the congregation’s overall knowledge,
skills and comfort level with their own Jewish journey.

Intentional Jews (Kavanah): We are a congregation that fosters intentional Jewish living. We will help
members grow to become active Conservative Jews living in a vibrant, spiritual, caring and ethical community.
