Why us?

At the Synagogue Strategies Group, we pride ourselves on working hard everyday for synagogues and their professional and volunteer leaders. We draw on 30 years of financial resource development and strategic planning experience in the organized Jewish community. We have helped to  raise more than $100 million to build stronger Jewish communities on a local, North American and international level. We understand that the key to success for campaigns and planning efforts is people engagement and to build strong relationships with your constituencies. We understand that it takes patience and hard work. And we can empower you with the knowledge and skills to help insure the future of your Sacred Community.

Why the Synagogue Strategies Group?

We view the success of your synagogue as our number one priority. We have helped more than 300 synagogues and their leaders. Not only have they raised necessary funds, but we have helped them to take a planful approach to synagogue life, to “dream about the future” and to develop and implement a plan to insure that their synagogue remains a vital and vibrant center of Jewish life and learning for their constituencies.   We get tremendous gratification from helping synagogue leaders make the world a better place.
