Members of the committee are the Temple’s liaisons with community religious and social service organizations.
We plan and run several major annual congregational events, including Martin Luther King Jr. Shabbat and Day of Service and the Interfaith Freedom Seder, both of which bring our interfaith neighbors from across the metropolitan area to WHC to celebrate our collective experience and further tolerance and understanding.
We present lectures on social action issues and organize the Congregation’s participation in rallies and demonstrations — including the 9/11 Unity Walk, Rally Against Genocide in Darfur, vigils at the Sudanese Embassy, and political forums.
To aid the vulnerable within our own community, we support efforts, such as the Second Sunday cooking project, through which Temple members provide meals for the homeless in Montgomery County.
Our monthly meetings take place on the second Wednesday of each month.
For now, they will take place virtually over Zoom. Contact Marsha Humphries (info below) to be added to the contact list.
