A whole book of the Torah is dedicated to the work of the Levites, the people who managed the details, logistics, set-up, and finances of the ancient Temple in Jerusalem. That so much of our most scared book is about the Levites shows that it is, in fact, holiness that is “in the details”. Those volunteers who serve as committee members and chairs are the Levites of today. And just as the Levitical work was holy in ancient time, so too is the work of Emanu-El’s dedicated volunteers. To help make our committees as effective as possible and to help build an even stronger sense of community and purpose, committees will meet on the same nights over the course of the coming year. We’re calling these evenings Committees In Community.
