This group meets periodically to discuss areas that pertain to matters of ritual such as prayer books, the different Shabbat services available to the congregation, bar and bat mitzvah rituals, issues relating to funerals and weddings, as well as Holiday services such as Tu B’shavat and Simchat Torah and High Holiday Services and schedules. For more information about the committee’s functioning contact the committee chair.
The Ritual Committee currently consists of 5 members, one of which is Rabbi Perry. The committee reviews all new prayer books prior to recommending new ones for the congregation to use and purchase. The Committee acts as a sounding board for Rabbi Perry’s ideas and assists in keeping the congregation apprised of new ideas and/or decisions.
