Tlarnowitz got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Synagogue needs your help - design an exciting new logo!
Check out Tlarnowitz's Logo design contest…
Congregation Beth El is a synagogue in Norfolk, VA serving members of all ages and backgrounds from the Tidewater area. As a synagogue, Beth El plays a lot of different roles to its members - it is a place of prayer, learning (both adult and children), community building, and socializing. People participate in activities to celebrate holidays, to do community service, and to engage in their varied interests in a Jewish setting (such as cooking, book clubs, and running.) The vision for Beth El is to make sure that all members feel a part of the community. The newly adopted synagogue mission statement is “Sharing Judaism to Make Life More Meaningful.” Logo must contain English name ("Beth El") and Hebrew name of synagogue ("Beit El") in Hebrew letters (see current logo if you are not familiar with the Hebrew)
Logo types to explore
We want the logo to portray the warm environment of the synagogue. The synagogue has been in existence since 1850 and many families have a long and generational history within the congregation. Others are new to the community. Positive associations/emotions that can be emphasized - tradition, compassionate, infused with modernism, The trick will be how to get one, relatively simple mark, to cover such a range of what the synagogue means to members. It is not just about the typical Shabbat or holiday service, but the broader picture of how being a part of Beth El lets you "share judaism to make life more meaningful." Some important notes if you are not familiar with the Jewish religion - there are a few key symbols and ritual objects that people will immediately associate with Judaism - star of David (a 6 pointed star), a Torah scroll, the tablets of the Ten Commandments, a menorah, a shofar, often a book or a tree can also be representative (learning for the book, generations and connections for a tree.) I've attached our current logo - NOT AS A MODEL TO COPY. Just as an FYI. I am also attaching some other synagogue logos I like.
