Do shuls have a responsibility to be friendly?

| |

I’m a sucker for shuls that are warm and welcoming and I absolutely hate when a shul is filled with cold people who use excuses as to why not one person said good shabbos to me or invited me for a meal. It is possible that I expect too much, shul is a place to daven, it’s not a social event, unless you count kiddush and sleazy over the mechitza staring, but both of those things are by products of coming to shul to daven – so do shuls even have a responsibility to be friendly or welcoming in the first place?

The Rabbi in San Francisco told me that I should be a shul consultant, I could go into a shul and tell them what they were doing right and what they had to work on.
