Special Congregational Meeting Regarding Interfaith Burials

Sunday, January 26, 2020 29 Tevet 5780

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In the event of inclement weather, a snow date has been set aside for Wednesday, January 29 at 6:30 p.m.

As you may know, the Ritual and Cemetery Committees, along with an ad hoc Interfaith Burial Committee, have been discussing this topic for almost 2 years. There were studies of texts and response with Rabbi Jon, surveys of policies of other cemeteries, and two well attended informational forums for TBA members at which proposals were shared and questions asked. Each and every question voiced by congregants was reviewed and discussed at committee meetings, and ultimately, proposed policies were developed and approved unanimously by our Board of Directors.

Our bylaws state that proposed significant changes in religious practice must be discussed at a meeting of TBA members in good standing and approved by a two-thirds majority in order to take effect. It is very important that we have a quorum present so that appropriate discussion and voting can take place. We need to have 25 members in good standing to make a quorum. Please make every effort to attend this meeting and be a part of the decision-making.

Please note that there will be no absentee or proxy votes and no other business will be discussed. You must be present to vote. As is the case with any Jewish gathering, coffee, tea. bagels. and other refreshments will be served.
