Thank you for your interest in TEMV’s Ritual Committee. At TEMV, the Ritual Committee organizes and supports the practice of worship and the before and after worship gatherings. The committee meets approximately every six weeks to ensure that that our services and activities before and after the services run smoothly. We coordinate our community volunteers who provide food for our oneg Shabbat gatherings, and coordinate and prepare members of the community to participate in and lead services. We work closely with Rabbi Sparr as she shapes our services to ensure they reflect our current ideals as well as honoring our long-held traditions.
Last year we held two early Shabbat services at 6:30 with wine and cheese before and dinner as a group afterwards. Based on feedback, we will be having more of these this upcoming year. This is just an example of how your voice helps create our new world.
