Temple Committees 

Committees are usually chaired by a Board member. Service on committees is open to all Temple Adas Shalom members. We encourage participation on committees which generate ideas to present to the Board of Trustees and then oversee the implementation of those projects. If you are interested in serving, please contact the Chairperson of that committee in person or via the office.

Religious Practices Committee: The Religious Practices Committee (RPC) is a vital part of the heart and soul of spiritual and religious life at Temple Adas Shalom, and is comprised of a cross-section of the congregation, representing various religous viewpoints. The women and men who volunteer on this committee are committed to maintaining and enhancing spiritual and religious practice at the Shul - working with the Rabbi to ensure smooth running of Shabbat, Festival, and special services. Among other duties, members serve as “gabbaim”, designate aliyot (honors) recipients, and approve selection of prayerbooks.

Most of the committee work is done quietly behind the scenes, e.g. arranging the weekly line-up of clergy, lay leaders, musicians, and Torah readers for Shabbat services.
