Our Committees

The Young Israel of Houston strives to offer various programs and benefits to our members. Many of these programs require volunteers to help plan, coordinate, and implement, and so we have a number of committees to help execute these programs. If there is any committee to which you would like to devote your time, please reach out to the committee chairs.
