ATC Ritual Committee

The Ahavath Torah Congregation Ritual Committee works in collaboration with Rabbi J, offering comments and advice regarding fostering attendance and participation. They examine elements of congregational worship, including worship times, the language of prayer, new ritual forms, music, configuration of the worship space, and how members are greeted when they enter the sanctuary.

The Ritual Committee oversees the upkeep and maintenance of the synagogue’s ritual objects, including prayer books, sifre Torah, silver ornamentation, tallitot and kippot.
