Growth Committee - Fall 2013

The JCA Growth Committee was formed in June. The committee’s mission is to retain and involve the area’s Jewish community, as well as to reach out to Jewish people outside the area and let them see all the area has to offer. This will ensure our community’s longevity and vitality.

Since June, the team has determined quite a few areas of improvement and has made progress on several of them. We had a successful social event at The Woodlands in August that brought out 60 community members and provided 15 new email addresses. We created a JCA Facebook page and already have over 100 “likes.” In addition, the committee is creating a new brochure to show off our community to newcomers and potential newcomers, and we are reinstating the recruiting/welcoming committee. Finally, we encouraged the re-introduction of this newsletter and are working to improve our JCA website’s overall appearance. In the coming months, we hope to improve our community’s outreach to the local universities, to set up a young people’s group, and work to find and recruit new people to the area.

We are reaching out to all “newcomers” to the community to be the Jewish Community Centers’ guest to our annual Chanukah dinner which will be held on Sunday, December 1. Please call the JCC and introduce yourself and see what we can do for you.

The growth committee has reached out to some of our newcomers to the community to let them know what we have to offer.
