Committees

There is something for everyone at Beth Meyer, but we need YOUR help to make it happen! If you are interested in serving on a synagogue committee, or just lending a hand now and then, use the following links to contact our committee chairs.

Adult Education - The Adult Education Committee coordinates opportunities for study and learning for adults. Volunteers can help plan activities, help welcome speakers to our community, and help set up or facilitate learning activities. Contact Amy Ripps.

Archives - The Archives Committee preserves and organizes facets of our congregation’s past. The congregation’s monthly HaMaggid newsletter often includes an Archives column with a look back at Beth Meyer people and events. Contact Harlan Shays.

Garden - The Community Garden Committee is responsible for the design, development, and maintenance of the Synagogue’s community garden areas. We coordinate closely with the Design Committee on sundry matters of common interest on our grounds. To learn more about our activities, please join our Yahoo! group.

Library - Beth Meyer has a full circulating Jewish library, with materials for all ages. The library committee is staffed by volunteers who meet once a week. Help is always needed and appreciated. Contact Rita Gerber at 919-846-5835.

MembershipThe Membership Committee welcomes new and potential congregants to the Beth Meyer community. Volunteers can answer questions, help plan events, and continue to make Beth Meyer Synagogue the hamish spiritual home for all members of the congregation. Contact Rondi Goodman.

Religious School - The Religious School Committee supports the Religious School Director, and members of the committee serve as liaisons between the religious school, parents, and the congregation. While not supervisory in nature, this committee provides feedback and suggestions to the Religious School Director about the various operational aspects of the school. Contact Beth Rossen.

RitualThe Ritual Committee works to get members of the congregation involved in ritual activities such as learning and leading services, attending shiva and weekday minyanim, and taking care of ritual objects (Torah scrolls and ornaments). Contact Rich Kaplan.

Ushers - The Usher Committee serves to warmly greet worshippers at Shabbat services and maintain a decorum conducive to prayer. Contact Ellen Adelman.

*Youth Activities, Sisterhood, Men's Club, Social Action and Hesed (listed elsewhere in this menu) also offer wonderful ways to get involved.
