A La Carte Menu Card – A Great Blueprint for Follow-Up.
Utliyze these cards to help you assess the interests of your congregation and determine the number or potential participants for the various programs and services we can help you set up, promote and run.  We recommend gathering the participant’s names and contact info so that you can follow up with each congregant when you are ready to offer a program in which they expressed interest.

How to use the A La Carte Menu Cards:

  1. Once registration for the program is complete, personalize the A-La-Carte Menu Cards for each participant by inserting their names on a card (one name per card). If seating is assigned, fill in table numbers as well.
  2. Assign “Meet and Greet” role to one or two members of the planning committee and have them distribute cards to participants as they arrive, or place cards in an alphabetized list and direct arriving participants to take their cards.
  3. During the meal, explain that the Menu Cards are a selection of programs/initiatives that the synagogue/Jewish center might offer, depending on demand, and ask participants to fold down the tabs for the programs which interest them.
  4. Collect the cards and give them to the appropriate follow-up coordinator (Rabbi, Program Director, etc.) to process as follows:
    • After SHABBAT ACROSS AMERICA/CANADA, count the number of participants who responded to each tab. If possible, record the names of those interested in each program in your database so that they may be contacted if/when the program is offered.
    • Contact us about potential follow-up programs. NJOP will provide you with free teacher’s guides, class materials, and promotional tools.


The Jewish Sabbath has been called an “oasis in time.” This heavenly gift is a unique opportunity for spiritual and psychological renewal that comes every week!
