Committees

Get involved!  Temple Beth Or belongs to all of us.  You are encouraged to bring your talents to one or more of our committees. We welcome your participation. Whether you have one hour or 100 hours to contribute, there is something for you to become involved in at our temple.

Look through the list of committees that follow. If you are interested in joining a committee, fill out the Volunteer Interest Form.

Adult Education
The Adult Education Committee brings innovative and enriching educational opportunities to our community.  Committee members design adult education offerings reaching out to the rich Jewish resources in the Triangle.  They design programs to meet our community’s intellectual curiosity.

Chavurot
A Chavurah is a wonderful way to extend your family’s circle of friends and deepen your Jewish identity. Members of this committee manage the chavurot program for TBO.

Membership
Temple Beth Or’s Membership Committee introduces visitors and prospective members to our congregation and its programs, and makes new members feel welcome once they have joined. In addition to greeting and answering questions at each Friday Shabbat service, the committee hosts annual new and prospective member events during the year.  The secret to the Membership Committee is the rich comradery in the group that spills over into everything they do.

Religious School
Temple Beth Or’s Religious School Committee serves an essential purpose in helping TBO staff to provide a warm, engaging, and fun Jewish educational environment for its students. The committee helps to support the religious school via volunteering to plan or help with events and activities throughout the school year—kick offs, holiday events, fundraisers and more. The also review and advise on policies, procedures, calendars, finances, and other pertinent information presented to the committee by the RS Director or Rabbi/Educator.

Ritual
The Ritual Committee works with the clergy team and Board of Trustees to enrich and enhance the ritual life of the congregation.  The committee’s dual role includes offering the clergy team ideas and feedback for the congregation’s liturgy.  Additionally, the committee works to welcome and encourage participation in the Jewish rituals of Temple Beth Or.  Questions and comments can be directed to TBORitual@TBORaleigh.org.

Tikkun Olam (Repair the World)

“Tzedek Tzedek Tirdof – Justice, justice you shall pursue, that you may live, and inherit the land which the Lord your God gave you (Deuteronomy 16:18).”

Temple Beth Or offers a wide array of projects inviting members to participate in tikkun olam – “repair of the world.”  Committee members develop a social justice agenda of projects each year, ranging from direct service and supporting causes to advocacy and partnerships with other groups working for our community and our world.
