Welcome to our new website and email system!  We appreciate your patience and your comments as we migrate from our current website and membership management system.  This is a major change to our email system.  It is possible that some members who have opted out of receiving these emails will receive this email.  Please simply reply and put your name in the message asking us not to send you emails.  

We are implementing these changes in  stages:

Stage 1 - February 2013.   Use of new website (some sections still under development) and limited use of new
                 email system.  Rabbi, Cantor and President will be able to make direct blog entries.

Stage 2 - Members will be able to login and see their family  and account information (probably by June 2013),
                 a directory of members, and pages limited to members only.

Stage 3 - Members will be able to set up and make payments directly via credit card for membership.
                  Members will be able to renew memberships and sign up for events online. (by July 15 2013)

Stage 4 - Committee chairs will be able to post entries on their own  committee pages (date not set yet).
