In communities large and small, a temple is a place of gathering. For Temple Shaaray Tefila
, located in the thriving township of Bedford, New York, the focus has always been on providing people with a place to join together and find unity in spirit and service.
That message has never changed. However, the means of communicating it to the growing population around the area have changed dramatically in recent years. And to help it stay up-to-date with these advances in online and interactive technology, the Temple turned to Create & Associates.
Tasked with helping to attract new members, assisting in a rabbinical search, and enhancing communications with the more than 600 existing member families, Create & Associates took on the challenge on a Pro Bono basis.
The first step was to design a new look and feel for the Temple’s digital and print materials, so that they would engagingly reflect the energy, sense of community, and wide range of religious, educational, and socially-oriented activities that Shaaray Tefila offers.
The second step, undertaken this past summer, was to redesign and program a brand new website that would provide multiple ways for current and prospective members to learn about, and become involved with, the congregation.
