The on-going companion Chaver and Tribute programs demonstrate the organizational and individual commitment to zedakah and to gemilut chasidim that has become characteristic of the membership of the North American Association of Synagogue Executives.
The Chaver program allows the entire NAASE family to rejoice together and to provide support and concern for colleagues at times of life cycle events and other personal occasions on which recognition or acknowledgment are appropriate. This program insures that the information is made available that allows for timely and appropriate communication among the membership both electronically and in writing.
Where appropriate and feasible, the chairperson of the Chaver program sends a personal note, a message is distributed on the ExecNet electronic list, and an inclusion is made in the general mailings that go periodically to the full membership.
Please let us know of b’nai mitzvot, engagements, weddings, special anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, retirements, births, special honors, recovery from illness, and sympathy, etc.
Tribute cards allow individuals or groups to honor or recognize simchas and and express sympathies among peers, loved ones and friends. The proceeds allow for special funding needs of the Association in the enhancement of the diverse programs of NAASE.
Tribute cards are available for donations of $5.00 each or $20.00 for a pack of five. While they are not yet available on-line, Tribute cards may be purchased through our Tribute chairperson.
Please contact the NAASE office about the Chaver and Tribute Programs and to provide the important information for these programs.
