Marketing and Communications Committee

Marketing Purpose
The Marketing & Communications Committee's goal is to enhance the promotion of Beth Tikvah Congregation to the outside community, and to keep our current members informed about scheduled activities, and actively involved in our community. We work closely with all of our internal staff, groups, organizations, and committees to ensure their events are well-publicized. We communicate to prospective and current members via our website, outside publications, bi-weekly emails, bi-monthly newsletters, event-specific emails, and social media.
