WJC Launches First Annual Yearbook (And We Need Your Bio Page)
We Need YOUR Help!
We are putting together the first annual WJC Yearbook and we need a bio page of your family! Each family will receive one page complete with information about individuals’ and family interests, and pictures encouraged.
- A single-page document describing your family and interests
- Include pictures
- Sentences, bullet points, poems…it all goes
- Format vertically, with text and photos as you would like to see it printed
- Please submit by Sunday, September 8
We are aiming for 100% participation so every family can be represented.
Why are we doing this?
Who doesn’t love a yearbook? As our community continues to grow, we realize we may not all know each other well, and there’s nothing like putting a face to a name. Hopefully, you’ll also learn something new about friends and discover common-interests with soon-to-be friends.
When is this happening?
The deadline is Sunday, September 8. But the sooner the better! The goal is to get the yearbook distributed to everyone early this fall. While yearbooks are often to memorialize a year past, we thought this is a great way to feel more connected moving forward. Plus, this is an excellent way for Rabbi Arnowitz and his family to get familiar with our WJC community… Can you imagine learning all our names?!? We encourage you to submit your page immediately but understand everyone’s schedules are hectic. We will also have a station at the Back to School BBQ here at WJC on Sunday, September 8, and this will be the deadline.
Who is paying for this?
We have applied for, and been awarded, a grant through our participation in SPARK; a fellowship program run by CLAL (The Center for Learning and Leadership) and funded by UJA-Federation of New York, to drive innovation and engagement in Jewish communities. Our team is made up of WJC member volunteers and staff. We have attended workshop sessions and have a coach. If you want to learn more about SPARK click here
Our target is YOU! Our goal is to increase engagement and connection across families with young children in our community. We all have such demands on our time and are trying to find ways to make connections to each other and WJC a bit easier. If you have any ideas, send them our way!
Thank you for your time and participation in advance!
