Ritual Practices Committee
The Ritual Practices Committee (RPC) assists the Rabbi in making our worship services meaningful. The committee members arrange for honors at services, assist in the Torah service and generally facilitate the conduct of the services. To prepare for congregational participation in High Holy Day services, the committee members arrange and schedule readings and honors to provide a smooth transition through the services. Meetings are held monthly during which 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 Reform Congregation with people of many different Jewish backgrounds the desires of a diverse congregation.
