Establishing a Photographer “Corps” to chronicle CEH events. We are seeking members (teen through adult) to take photos at CEH events. Once on the list, volunteers will be contacted for availability for various events. Sign-up info coming soon!

Tweaks to online and paper membership forms to make them easier to use and to enable user to distinguish between expressing interest in Participation in various activities vs. Leading those activities.

-Using the new online form to communicate before and after all synagogue events, to share what’s going on at CEH with members and others perusing our website.

How to grow this committee. Email vp.membership@etzhayim.net if you are interested in joining! We focus on both “in-reach” (bringing our membership together as a community via fun, religious and educational activities) and “out-reach” (growing our membership).

Upcoming event: Come help us build the CEH sukkah on Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 10am!
