Engagement and Community—those are key reasons many join a synagogue. And throughout our history, we have learned how to not just survive, but flourish in a host of environments.
One great way to both engage and help build our community is to join an IHC committee. It is an opportunity to both feel more connected and to improve our congregation. IHC wants you!
