Strategic Planning

February 28, 2011


At a recent Board Meeting I announced the forming of a Strategic Planning Committee. Under the chairmanship of Dr. Hal Chadow this committee will begin the process of developing a strategic plan for Great Neck Synagogue which will not only tell us where we currently stand, but will help us plot a course for the future.

We are a large shul with many members and a diversity of views and opinions. In order to facilitate the work of the committee we have established an email address for your thoughts, concerns, questions and recommendations. The committee can be reached at     We have accomplished many wonderful things  but there is still much more to be done. I look forward to your  participation in this important project.
