BE A PART OF THE TEMPLE EMANU-EL STORY

 

Join a TEE Committee today. 

Do what you do best—whatever that is!—in service of TEE. The following committees keep our community strong and provide a way for members to join together with other congregants who share their interests and build camaraderie. New members, new ideas for committees, and new and old friends always welcome!  

Most committees hold once-monthly meetings. Contact the Temple office for more information or to see how you can be a part of it! 

Caring Community  Perform mitzvot within our Temple community and help us be there for one another! Visiting and/or providing meals for congregants who are going through a tough time, assisting in setting up homes for shiva, sending cards to congregants who have an upcoming simcha or are experiencing a loss, and selecting gifts for new babies are all ways this committee makes TEE a truly caring community. 

Finance  Are numbers your thing? Then join the Finance Committee! Led by the Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer, the TEE Finance Committee manages financial issues related to payables, receivables, monthly and quarterly reporting, and budgeting. 

Housing  Help set up for services and events, assist in streaming, and be an all-around mensch for the masses.

Lifelong Learning  If you enjoy learning across the spectrum of religious, spiritual, social, and lifestyle topics and engaging in meaningful conversation about life experiences and observations, then LLL is for you. This committee is comprised of inquisitive individuals who are committed to learning opportunities pertaining to the full expanse of Jewish life. The Committee works in collaboration with community partners Congregation Neve Shalom and the Jewish Community Center of Middlesex County. Coordinate presentations and classes and select speakers for events, including the annual Diana S. Herman Scholar-in-Residence event, and enjoy our Lunch and Learn series with the Cantor and Rabbi. 

Membership  Help us engage with current and prospective members by connecting them to each other and to Temple Emanu-El. This is accomplished through fostering relationships, planning social events and programs, and representing TEE in the larger community.

Ritual  Get and set the inside scoop by working with clergy to create worship policies and services as well as coordinate details for High Holy Day and festival observances. 

Social Action  The Social Action Committee’s award-winning work has helped countless individuals and families with basic needs live with dignity. Through a partnership with Legal Services of New Jersey, the committee organizes collections of school supplies, holiday gifts, gift cards, and essential needs for Legal Services’ clients. Members have also helped with statewide food distribution; delivered donations for the homeless population of greater Elizabeth; lobbied state legislators; sorted supplies for war victims of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine; and joined together with their fellow members to make a difference for the causes they care about. If you feel passionate about helping others, join us in working for social justice! 

Ways and Means/Fundraising  Fundraising=fun-raising! You can do both as a member of this committee. Support the Temple by raising funds through events, campaigns, and whatever else you can think of! 

Women of Emanu-El Edison  Welcoming all of TEE who identify as women, WEEE provides programming, community, and food! We follow the tenets of "Sisterhood, Spirituality, and Social Justice," coined by the international Women of Reform Judaism. Whether gathering in the sukkah, collecting gift cards for the holidays, participating in Erev Shabbat services, fundraising, or providing camp scholarships for TEE youth, WEEE is an integral part of the Emanu-El community. 

Youth Education  Create the total Jewish experience for our young people! The Youth Ed mission is to bridge our children’s formal and experiential education by taking what they learn in religious school and connecting it to the greater Jewish community. Work with the religious school director, clergy, and youth group director to ensure a robust and rewarding curriculum, establish and update policies, and develop exciting family programs and events that foster a positive Jewish identity in our Temple’s children and teens.
