A Special Message for Members of Temple Beth Am
If you arrived here via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or any other channel, please skip this post. Members of Beth Am, please continue.
For Members of Temple Beth Am: The Beth Am (Ning) Social Network Invitation email that you recently received only allowed for 200 characters. This post offers a slightly longer explanation.
If you read this weeks’ Temple Topics (http://www.oyrtbetham.org/tt_current.html), you may have noticed an article (page 12) about the new Beth Am Social Network. This site was set up to help bring our community together. On the site, you’ll find tools to create your own blog, post pictures and videos, have discussions, create groups, etc. And all within a safe and secure environment.
To join, visit http://oyrtba.ning.com. Once there, enter your name and an email address (please use the email we have on file at Beth Am), then create a password and provide your birthday (sorry, but Ning requires that). You should receive a confirmation email in about 24 hours.
We hope you will explore and have fun. And please be sure to complete your Profile so everyone can get to know you better.
If you have questions or want to learn more about how to use the site, a free tutorial class is scheduled for Tuesday, January 5 at 7 p.m. in the Temple Beth Torah Chapel. In this class, you will learn how to get around the site, set your privacy settings, create and manage groups (if you have a committee, you should definitely come to learn how to set up a group), and much more. Please bring your laptop & wireless card as we aren’t certain how many people the Beth Am router can handle). The class will be taught by our own Social Media expert and network creator, Neal Wiser. RSVP to nwiser [at] gmail [dot] com (please put “OYRTBA Social Network” in Subject Line).
Neal Wiser & Lisa Wiser
