DFSSM Prioritization Survey For Alumni

Main Content

Over the past two years, it has become clear that we have an opportunity to significantly raise the profile of our Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music both within the College-Institute and in the Reform Movement as a whole. We need help from you, our alumni, to make this possible. There are three key areas of prioritization for achieving this goal. Please join in this vital work by letting us know in which area you would like to participate.

Advocacy (Making Our Program Central to the Agenda of the Entire Reform Movement)

  • Develop a strategy for Movement-wide prioritization of the DFSSM,
  • Cultivate key contacts to enact the prioritization strategy,
  • Coordinate communication to effectuate successful advocacy outcomes, and
  • Personally advocate on behalf of the prioritization agenda.

Networking (Building Widespread Connections among Lovers of Jewish Music and the Cantorate)

  • Build regional networks of DFSSM alumni,
  • Develop a strategy for broad-based engagement with “Friends of the DFSSM” (laity and professionals), and
  • Build relationships on behalf of “Friends of the DFSSM.”

Development (Cultivating Deep, Broad, and Sustainable Resources to Support our Program)

  • Consult on DFSSM fundraising goals and priorities,
  • Collaborate on a strategy for successful cultivation of DFSSM supporters, and
  • Facilitate personal connections with prospective DFSSM contributors.

Please contact Cantor Richard Cohn, DFSSM Director, with any questions or to seek further information. 

Thank you for being a part of this vital agenda for change!
