Chevra Kaddisha

Our Chevra Kaddisha (holy society) are loving and compassionate volunteers who help out when there is a death in our community. They bring comfort or food to those in mourning or to help make a shiva minyan. Some have been trained in the sacred act of preparing a body for burial.

Panim el Panim

Panim el Panim (face to face) is an initiative at Kol Shofar whose goal is to create opportunities to get to know each other and learn about one another’s values and concerns. How do we do that? We encourage congregants to meet one-on-one or in small groups to share their stories and hopes for themselves and their communities. As these conversations take place, congregants might identify shared interests and concerns that they wish to explore further. In some instances, this exploration might lead to joint activities or programs that address them.

Kol Shofar is a founding member of the Marin Organizing Committee (MOC), the Marin County branch of this national movement, whose goal is to work at a local level toward greater community engagement and social change. This commitment is reflective of Kol Shofar’s vision “to teach, inspire, and pursue the principle of Tikkun Olam, the age-old belief that the Jewish People is a partner with God in addressing society’s ills.”

Ritual

The primary function of the Ritual Committee is to advise and support the Rabbi regarding issues of religious law and ritual practice at Kol Shofar. The committee also serves as a means for congregants to express concerns and questions regarding issues related to these or areas of synagogue life.
