Rosh Chodesh

Chair: Gail Snyder

Temple Judea’s Rosh Chodesh group is a social/study gathering for women that meets on or near the date of the new moon each month. Our meetings are typically held in the homes of congregants who serve as hosts. Each meeting features a vegetarian potluck dinner, a short service, and a member-led program of Jewish learning.


Co-Chairs: Lorraine Kogan and  Risa Neiman

Temple Judea's sisterhood brings together women to serve our Temple, support our community and enrich our lives through social events, educational and spiritual programs.  We are a diverse group of women who offer a warm, open and inspiring environment, enabling women to make new friends or deepen relationships they already have.

Social Action Committee

Co-Chairs: Cathy Gilgore, Andrea Ostroff, Melanie Blumberg

Judea’s activities related to tikkun olam – working together to repair the world. Our efforts include programs that help people in need, that provide education on issues of social justice, and that advocate for addressing the underlying causes of social injustice. Members of the committee participate in organizing and publicizing specific programs, determining what activities we will undertake, and setting the direction for Social Action efforts at Temple Judea.

Social Justice Committee

Co-Chairs: Maxine Katz, Sunitha Menon

Temple Judea’s Social Justice committee was formed to raise our collective voices against hate and prejudice of all forms in our community and country.  We believe that all people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect.  At times we join with other regional groups for ongoing education, dialogue, and response, as appropriate, particularly when our brothers and sisters of faiths, races and/or nationalities have been persecuted in any manner. Temple Judea Social Justice is a founding member of the Bucks Mont Interfaith Community.

The goal of the Coalition is to is learn about each other's religions and culture and to support each other.  We believe that through knowledge and understanding we can reduce negative stereotyping and broaden community outreach.

At the present time, besides Temple Judea, the coalition includes members from Trinity Solebury Episcopal Church, Bharatiya (Hindu) Temple and North Penn Mosque.  We also have a connection with Zubaida Foundation and Doylestown Second Baptist Church and continue to work to add new religious institutions.

We participate in several events throughout the year as well as attend interfaith services held at our respective institutions.  These programs are open to the entire Temple Judea community and the various interfaith communities.

Youth Group – “The Tribe”

Chair: Carrie Kaiser

The Tribe will focus on 8-12th grade with some events open to younger age groups. The mission of this group is to bring Jewish Youth together to socialize, participate in Temple events, connect with younger children in the congregation and contribute to the community. We will have monthly meetings after religious school on Sundays.
