Membership

This committee has the purpose of supporting existing congregants, cultivating new relationships within the community and supporting the members of the congregation office staff with any events, outreach and support members may ask or require at any time.
 

Mitzvah Corps

Mitzvah Corps was established to provide emotional support to members of the Or Ami community during times of personal crisis or emotional need. It is our belief that comfort from others can ease pain and promote healing. 

How Congregants Can Get Involved

  • If you know of someone who needs help, let the Rabbi, Deb Delano Brenner and the President/s of the congregation know who is in need.

  • Make meals for members in times of need

  • Help out at Shivas

  • Make phone calls to members who are in need of a “lift”

  • Provide local transportation to members in need.

Religious Observance Committee (ROC)

The committee is charged with partnering with Rabbi and Cantor regarding religious services - everything from Shabbat services to High Holy Day services and all the holidays in between.  We help with organizing honors and readings for the High Holidays to arranging ushers for these services as well as for B'nai mitzvah services. We help with Purim celebrations, the community Passover seder, Sukkot and Simchat Torah services.
 

Religious School Committee

The Religious School Committee is composed of parents, teachers and the religious school director who meet to discuss religious school direction, specifics and any issues or concerns that arise during the religious school calendar year. It’s a committee that focuses on strengthening Or Ami’s program/offerings, fostering community within the school and retention of students as they cross over programs within the synagogue. Committee members are asked to attend quarterly meetings to voice their opinions on religious school matters.
 

Religious School Parent Organization (RSPO)

We organize, plan and hold fun Jewish events and programs for the children of the Religious School. We create fundraisers and mitzvah projects, while supporting our Director, Rabbi, teachers and staff.
