Nehar Shalom is a community co-created by our members. Your presence is valued in any way you show up. There are many ways to be involved, from attending services to cooking a meal for someone who needs it; to serving on the Board to helping build our website. You can read about our existing committees below, and reach out to learn more. If you see a gap and want to create a new committee or working group, please be in touch with Rabbi Leora at or a Board Member.
