does the host pay for the party or the synagogue?
Jodi Handler
01:12:41
how is it done virtually then?
ke-elaine
01:12:47
we used a company to set it all up
ke-elaine
01:13:10
Lucky me to have a president who is so involved!!
Brett Spector
01:13:13
Can you share the company please?
Idelle Wood

You can't go to someone's home. How would this work now virtually.

Barry Mael
01:19:37
send to me and I will send out
Judy Groner
01:19:40
How can we solicit now from businesses and restaurants who are hurting when they would typically give to an aution?
Schecky Schechner
01:19:46
You gather in folks' houses for dinner, then join up in the congregation for dessert and the live auction...the virtual auction occurs the entire evening

Frank Jacobson Or Tzion Scottsdale
01:21:37
what is the best way to obtain the pledge virtually? With no card/tab to turn down, will people use texting during the "live" appeal at the virtual service?
ke-elaine
01:21:53
We are actually in Palo Alto.
Frank Jacobson Or Tzion Scottsdale
01:22:05
Will it be best to just use the USPS?
Marian Gordon
01:24:00
We don't livestream services, so will do annual appeal speech virtually in advance of YK and send out Constant Contact survey where they can select or write in amount they want to pledge.
lsiegal
01:24:01
This was very helpful. I would love to get the written presentations so that I can go back and review what was said.
