The Music, Prayer and Ritual Committee advises and supports the rabbi in matters concerning the music, prayer and ritual activities of the congregation. If you are interested in joining us or if you have comments and opinions to share, please contact committee chair Jeremy Wolfe at firstname.lastname@example.org (Note: the MPR Committee is currently setting up small “study” groups to investigate issues that are important for its future work. Find out more and how you can get involved)
As the voice of the congregation on these matters, the Committee strives to be aware at all times of the spiritual needs of the congregation. In partnership with the congregation’s clergy, the Committee formulates policy for ritual activities that are part of the life of the congregation.
Specific responsibilities of the Committee include:
The Committee and clergy members are aware of their shared role and responsibility for the spiritual life of the congregation. Their work together requires a special relationship of respect and understanding. The Committee recognizes the special learning and training of the members of the clergy, while the clergy recognize the need for input by the lay members of the Committee and congregation. Actions of the Committee are under the oversight of the Board of Trustees.
