The greatest window of opportunity to meet, teach, inspire and follow-up with the largest numbers of Jews during the year is over Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. Shuls, community outreach centers, kollels and campus venues report attendance increases during the Yamim Noraim from 50 to 400 participants. One new-wave Jewish spirituality group wrote that 220,000 viewers tuned in to their Kol Nidre TV broadcast! What kinds of programs and beginner minyanim can we run to attract and inspire searching Jews to become transformed into core participants in our outreach centers, campuses, shuls, and kollels?
