Enhancing
The Experience

It's hard to break paradigms,
especially at institutions that
have thrived on tradition for
generations. But Synagogue
2000 has made noticeable
progress at nearly all 13 local
Reform and Conservative syn-
agogues involved.
Known as S2K, the national
program provides a framework to examine
congregational life and culture and to find
ways to enhance the experience for congre-
gants. Hundreds of Detroiters have invested
valuable time toward the effort.
At several synagogues, music has played a
large role in enhancing the experience. Friday
night services with musical instruments and
new melodies or specialized onegs are attract-
ing growing numbers. Other innovations are
more subtle — changes in board meetings to
allow members more input, establishment of
a committee to focus solely on membership,
new ways of greeting worshippers on
Shabbat.
In this week's cover story (beginning on
page 64), Staff Writer/Copy Editor Diana
Lieberman checks in on S2K as it nears the
end of its three-year duration. She chronicles
its ups and downs, talks with many partici-
pants, assesses its accomplishments and
explores its future.

Shabbat Shalom,
