The role of the Religious Affairs Committee is to coordinate with clergy and lay leadership at The Jewish Center on all matters of religious observance and ritual. This includes, but is not limited to, changes in the content or flow of services, arranging for High Holy Day honors, coordinating our various Shabbat services and programs, training gabbaim and shamashim, and more. This Committee, with guidance from clergy, helps assure that our religious practices fall within the guidelines of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.
Also, the Committee works to inform and educate congregants about religious practices, and prepares a regular column for the newsletter on topics of general interest about religious observance, practice and history.
