COMMITTEES

The success of CBS depends on the innovation of our members who bring their ideas to the table by participating in CBS' committees.  CBS' committee system allows CBS members to participate in the day-to-day running of the shul by getting involved in specific matters of importance to them.  We encourage all members to become active in the CBS community by joining committees that interest them.

If you are interested in joining a committee, contact the committee chair using the information below.

If you have an idea for a new committee that you would like to form, please contact office@bethsholomlawrence.org.
