Welcoming Committee

Co-Chairs: Kyla P and Sandi R

The Welcoming Committee connects with all prospective members and new members through their first year at Har Shalom. New members are partnered with a committee member throughout their first year with Har Shalom. Committee members serve as a great resource in answering questions about the community and being a friendly face at events and services. The Welcoming Committee also organizes welcoming events for new families such as the New Member Kabbalat Shabbat, New Member Mingles, and the Picnic in the Park. 

Spiritual Practices Committee

Chair: Batyah H

The Spiritual Practices Committee is the organizing team behind all services, High Holiday programming, and ritual events. They work with the Activities Committee to plan holiday-related programming such as the Megillah Reading during Purim and the Second Night Seder during Passover.


Activities Committee

Chair: Kyla P

The Activities Committee is the social hub of Har Shalom. Committee members plan a variety of social programs for small interest groups like mahjong, book club, or hiking, as well as larger events for the community as a whole. The Activities Committee is always looking for fun ideas and suggestions so please email with your ideas!

Youth Education Committee

Co-Chairs: Alison H and Rebecca S

The Youth Education Committee supports a thriving culture of learning and positive Jewish identities for Har Shalom’s youth, their families, and the broader community. This committee focuses on the following primary areas: religious school, teen programming, the library, and additional youth education programming such as Shabbat Jr. and Mini Menschies.

Lifelong Learning Committee

Chair: Rabbi Finestone

Each fall and spring, Har Shalom offers a wide range of classes on Jewish topics of interest, from history and text study to contemporary issues and culture. The Lifelong Learning Committee works with the Rabbi twice each year, in an advisory capacity, to plan and create these courses for the community. Some committee members also serve as instructors.
