As a participatory, lay-led congregation, Adat Shalom members work through committees to shape the rich and varied programs and activities offered by the community. The committees provide a wide range of interests and services to the community. They also offer members an opportunity to pursue areas of interest to them, contribute their time and talents to the community, learn new skills and best of all, meet and work together with fellow congregants. 

Though the work may sometimes be demanding, the rewards and satisfaction are substantial. For new and "newish" members, committee work is the best way to get to know the community and become integrated into Adat Shalom. We invite you to scroll through the committee descriptions on our Participatory Community page to become acquainted with their purposes and programs, find one that appeals to you, contact the chair and participate in their activities.
