Meet the BT Synagogue Life Committee

The BT leadership has created a new Synagogue Life Committee to provide strategic guidance for cultivating and growing an actively engaged community and increasing awareness of the benefits of membership for congregants of all ages and stages of life. All of our rabbis, as well as select staff, will serve on the committee together with representatives from every arm of the BT family, including each division of the Day School, Hebrew School, BT Camps, Mercaz, Brotherhood, Sisterhood, alumni/young adults, Development, Religious Services, Social Action, new members, seasoned members, past and current lay leadership and Shul ushers.
