Full Bulletin Message



Temple Tiferet Shalom is what we, as a community, make it. Every year, we elect new a new Board of Trustees and a new Executive Board, and we welcome new members to our committees (e.g.,membership, social action, adult education, worship, religious school, finance, etc.). Your involvement at any and all levels of Temple activity is so important, indeed essential, to our ability to function as a community and to serve as a relevant Reform Jewish community in prayer, learning, and social events for Jewish and Interfaith families.


Your involvement can be substantial, like being on the Executive Board or committee leadership, but it doesn’t need to be to make a substantial impact. We understand that everyone has other commitments, and some people have the time to serve in more time-consuming roles and some do not, but please know this: the investment you make in Temple Tiferet Shalom will pay tremendous dividends in your life. We have so many wonderful people in our Temple family. You will always get out more than you put in. Put another way, your Jewish community is worth your investment of time and energy.


We are about to embark on the process to elect leadership for the 2024-2025 fiscal year. If you are interested in serving on the Board of Trustees or in a leadership position, I encourage you to reach out to Rachel Zalvan (, our immediate past president, who chairs the Nominating Committee. If you are interested in serving on a committee, I encourage you to reach out to the chair to discuss your interests.
