High Holy Days Committee is tasked with planning for the High Holy Days. Beth Am gathers for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, this year at the Redemption Bay Area Church in San Jose. Committee members support our clergy by calling congregants to invite them to accept honors for the High Holy Day services and by helping to staff the tables outside the venue, welcoming congregants and visitors during the High Holy Days, handing out prayerbooks and tickets, and answering questions. Members may also assist with ushering during the High Holy Days services, help worshipers in need of wheelchairs or other special assistance, and help ensure that member participation runs smoothly during the services. Most of the High Holy Days Committee’s work is coordinated via e-mail and phone contact. Contacts: Tina, David and Debby.
Shabbat Committee focuses on ways to enhance the experience of Shabbat throughout our membership by 1) educating the congregation about Shabbat, 2) enhancing the Shabbat experience and hospitality already in place at Beth Am, 3) encouraging our members to enhance their Shabbat experiences at home, and 4) giving members the tools and inspiration to observe Shabbat. The Shabbat Committee consists of members who care about deepening their own experience of Shabbat and helping others to discover how special Shabbat can be. Contact: Louise and Aly
