Our members volunteer their time and their passion for what matters most to them.

While we have an active board, executive director, and spiritual leadership, Temple Beth Israel wouldn't be possible without a dedicated group of members who find ways to lead, contribute, and participate in their own unique ways.  If you're interested in volunteering your time at Temple Beth Israel, we are sure you'll find a position where you fit right in! Contact the Temple office for more information. 

The TBI Board leads the following committees and are always looking for volunteers!

Administration - Allan Goldfarb, Vice President

Bulletin Committee - Dr. Sandra Packard, Board of Trustees;  Lynn Burton, volunteer

Caring Committee - Connie Mederos-Jacobs, Board of Trustees

Communications - Alan Freedman, Vice President 

This committee is responsible for formal communication from TBI to its members- our website, advertisements and materials often distributed and sent through other committees via our e-mail outreach. We are working through the transition to Shulcloud (even as this site is live, there is still work to do!) and are always interested in members who want to have a say in the voice of TBI. 

Education Center Advisory Board - Michael Boorstein, Vice President

Finance - Bob Vigder, Financial Secretary

Funding & Development - Dr. Howard Tessler, Vice President

This committee deals with donations, campaigns, and everything related to how we assess the needs of our community and raise money to meet them. We are looking for members who might be interested in reaching out to our members to see how we can best support them, and how they can support TBI through our fundraising campaigns.

Gala Committee - Barbara Pressman, Board of Trustees

Israel Committee - Dr. Ken Newmark, volunteer

Long Range Planning - Dr. Philip Gelber, Vice President

Membership Development - Susan Newmark, Board of Trustees 

This committee is responsible for planning the details of membership- rates, renewal procedures, and working with our existing and incoming members to make sure they have the support they need. We're busiest in the summer and leading up to the High Holidays, but we're always looking for volunteers who can commit the time to help us reach out to our membership and guide new members.

Ritual Committee - Kelli Veit, Board of Trustees

This committee deals with everything that relates to the content of our services- the rituals- and how we really practice our Judaism. It is not set in stone, and we are constantly assessing how we can best serve our members' needs, and how to make sure that our traditions are relevant and meaningful. We're seeking members who attend Shabbat and holiday services, and who are interested in thinking through them with us.
