Hey all. So I live in a very Jewishly-engaged community in a major US city; lots of diverse religious organizations (synagogues, independent minyanim); kosher restaurants; Jewish day schools. The shul I daven at, unlike (or maybe like) a lot of modern orthodox shuls, struggles with hospitality (making sure everyone has a place to go for Shabbat and holiday dinners and lunches). We don’t have the staff to support a professional hospitality person, and the volunteers who run hospitality have limited success at best getting people engaged in their program. I’m curious what works well for your community? Also, do you have a program to support folks who need ongoing hospitality (individuals experiencing illness or financial hardship, or people who are new to the community)? All suggestions are appreciated.
