support of the work of our congregation within our membership, the greater community,

Israel and Am Yisrael, and to the same end be an active participant in fund-raising for the

congregation.

sense of community, and a call to create a vibrant Jewish culture in the Hamptons.

 The rabbi should engage young people and young families, encouraging membership,

attendance at services, and inspiring a meaningful and enthusiastic sense of what it means

to lead a Jewish life and participate fully in our community.
