Active Committees of B'nai Havurah


The following committees are looking for volunteers. Most committees meet throughout the year. Members of committees meet new people, plan and implement program ideas, and recommend policy to the Board of Trustees.   Contact for more information.

Budget and Finance: This committee directs the financial and fiscal affairs of B'nai Havurah. The committee oversees the budget process and makes recommendations to Board of Trustees regarding the dues and fees structure.

Building Committee: This committee assists the Executive Director in decisions related to maintaining the building. The committee would welcome new members, particularly those with a background in property management or construction.  The committee meets about eight times a year.

Chesed: The Chesed Committee provides care and comfort, including visits, meals, and transportation, for members who are ill, grieving or otherwise in need of "loving-kindness."

Development: The development committee works to insure the ongoing financial health of the organization. 

High Holidays: This committee works with the Executive Director and office staff to organize, prepare for, staff and "stage" our High Holy Days services -- a huge undertaking requiring many volunteers!

Holidays: The Holidays Committee plans events and programs for Jewish holidays other than Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. 

Inclusivity: The Inclusivity Committee's mission is to raise awareness, guide and support this Reconstructionist community to become and remain meaningfully inclusive and to facilitate participation of all members of all abilities and challenges.

Institute/Shabbaton: Institute/Shabbaton -- an on- or off-site retreat featuring a theme and speakers and workshops -- is a B'nai tradition. Join this committee to help plan our next Institute!

IT (Information Technology): If you have an interest or background in technology, we need you! The IT Committee makes decisions about and troubleshoots our computer and telecommunications hardware and systems.

Library: The Library Committee keeps our library organized and updated, both in our building and on-line, and creates themed displays of some of our books.

Membership/Orientation: Are you passionate about what B'nai Havurah has to offer and want to see us grow? Join the Membership Committee to help us welcome new members! Plan and staff New-Member Orientation and provide outreach to prospective members.

Shabbat Services: The Shabbat Services Committee is responsible for the content, scheduling and conduct of all religious services. The committee is comprised of community members as well as Rabbi Evette.

Tikkun Olam: The Tikkun Olam Committee works within our congregation and in the greater community to fulfill our vision of "repairing the world" by suggesting projects for participation and by granting monies from the Tikkun Olam "half shekel" fund.
