Ruach Committee

Metallic Balloons and StreamersRuach, which means “spirit” in Hebrew, is alive and well at Congregation Beth Sholom. Our members come together for programs during the year that put our ruach on display for all to see and enjoy.

The Ruach Committee annually presents a tisch (literally meaning table) on the second night of Shavuot. Historically, scholars from the community would regularly come together and sit around a table, filled with delicious food and beverage, sharing words of Torah and singing songs. Congregation Beth Sholom’s modern version captures this same essence while welcoming all from the community – any age, any gender, any education level – to share this joyous occasion.

The Ruach Committee also presents an annual concert featuring Tavim, usually on the Friday night of Shabbat Shira (the Shabbat of Song).
