Community :: Key Teams – A Way to Become Involved

Key Teams at Emanuel

Emanuel, like most synagogues, is a community administered and largely run by members of the congregation. Key teams do many different things.  Some, such as the Adult Education and Social Action teams, plan events and programs, while other key teams address administrative or organizational needs. While each key team differs in focus and activity, all of them provide an easy, enjoyable way to get involved in the Congregation, meet new people, and help make Emanuel a living and thriving institution. Without them we would be but bricks and mortar.
