Committees do much of the work of the congregation. Joining a committee is an easy and rewarding way to become more engaged and contribute to the success of Kol Hadash.

Committees are open to all members. Participation is generally flexible, and you will never be asked or  expected to donate to join a committee or participate in a leadership position.


Steering Committee

This volunteer leadership group serves as the congregational board of directors.  It’s the hub for all committees and main decision-making body for the congregation. Members who are active in a congregational program or project can serve on the Steering Committee -- no nominations or elections required.
