Committees

Congregation B'nai Torah believes that community and engagement are key to a successful synagogue.  B'nai Torah is proud of the various committees we have that offer all members different ways of getting involved, meeting fellow members, giving back to our community, and ultimately making lifelong friends.

Here is a list of each of the committees we currently have and a brief description. 

Stay tuned for more information about our Small Groups initiative beginning in January of 2020.

B'nai Torah Book Group Our avid readers meet once a month to discuss their monthly literary selection.
Brotherhood Our Brotherhood’s Sunday morning breakfasts featuring prominent speakers are a tradition at B’nai Torah. As well as providing an informative social forum for its members, the Brotherhood strives to achieve important synagogue and community goals.
Israel Action Committee This committee keeps us up-to-date on action we can take to support Israel. The committee sponsors events and hosts the Tzofim Friendship Caravan.
Rosh Hodesh Women's Group

Our Women’s Group meets monthly to explore women’s changing roles in Judaism through the years and discuss various topics of interest such as Jewish holidays and biblical interpretations from a women’s point of view, the Kabbalah, mothers and daughters, and family life.

Rosh Hodesh is a biblical holiday that sanctifies the appearance of the first sliver of moon each month, symbolizing renewal and the cycle of life. Since the Middle Ages, it has been set apart as a holiday particularly important for women.  Rosh Hodesh rotates each month to different homes.

Sisterhood

The Sisterhood is a group of women who come together to share friendship, provide community service, go on outings, like to theaters/museums and host engaging speakers. The Sisterhood is a group where women can feel connected spiritually, intellectually and socially. Open to members and non-members alike.

Are you interested in sponsoring an   Oneg or Kiddush?  The Sisterhood can help you.  See our menu and contact the office for more information!

Social Action/Tikkun Olam This group runs Social Action programming such as food drives, clothing collections, backpacks for disadvantaged children and also facilitates educational programming and involvement about Social Action Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) for all of the synagogue including adults and for our Talmud Torah children.

Tikkun Olam has also partnered with nOURish of Bridgeport, CT.  This organization helps feed the hungry in our local community and provides them with a food pantry.  If you are interested in volunteering please refer to the calendar for the next opportunity.
