Ritual Practices Committee (RPC)

The Ritual Practices Committee assists the Rabbi in making our worship service a meaningful experience.  The committee members arrange for honors at Shabbat services, assist in the Torah service and generally facilitate the conduct of the service.  To prepare for congregational participation in High Holiday services, the committee members arrange and schedule readings and honors to provide a smooth transition through the services.  Meetings are held bi-monthly except during the High Holy Days. During meetings the committee and the Rabbi discuss Shabbat services, special services and address congregational recommendations and suggestions.  All matters of ritual, as practiced by Temple of Israel, undergo review to accommodate the desires of a diverse congregation.

Committee members are:

Maureen Rea (Chair) Glenn Tetterton
Genie Lancaster Jane Brody
Connie Heymann Morris Levy
Richard Lerner Sandy Apple
