Opportunities

Committees are the life blood of Congregation Brith Shalom.

In consort with CBS staff, our various committees, auxiliaries and groups facilitate cooperative efforts in a variety of areas ranging from sponsoring programs and events, assisting with leadership and budgetary decisions, spear-heading member outreach efforts, and offering a common voice on issues pertinent to the synagogue as a whole.

The committees and groups provide an opportunity for members to socialize, network, share information, and provide a support mechanism for a variety of areas throughout the organization.
