- Ritual Committee
The Ritual Committee is a group of inspired people dedicated to overseeing, maintaining and constantly re-inventing our spiritual life here at TBT. A multigenerational collaboration of individuals with their fingers on the pulse of congregational wants, needs and desires. A vibrant blend of traditional and progressive perspectives always looking to push the bounds of complacency with simple prayer to find ways to motivate and drive our passions in our relationship with each other, our relationship with God and our place in the Wayne Jewish Community. A temple cannot exist without devout spirituality. Come join our ritual committee to help chart our course as we navigate the spiritual waters, combining a deep respect for our traditions and our past, a holy and joyous enthusiasm for our present, and an unwavering belief in our sacred legacy and our temple’s future.
