Mission: Fostering professional connections and sharing resources to strengthen financial resource development in congregations across North America

Advancing Temple

ATID (Advancing Temple Institutional Development) is an affiliate of the Union for Reform Judaism and was created as the organization for development professionals in North American Reform congregations. ATID also means "future" in Hebrew, which is a critical aspect of our work as Development professionals. Our work fuels not just the here and now - but the future of our Reform Jewish communities.

The 3 Purposes...

Growing from six founders to a current membership of forty, we have created a network to:

1. Share information and best practices with one another.

2. Learn from experts in the broad field of non-profit development to enhance our own programs.

3. Strengthen and grow professional development opportunities in the synagogue world.

We welcome inquiries from leaders of congregations considering creating a development department. We also welcome inquiries from individuals considering a career in synagogue development.
