Cantor Sam Levine appointed to the Committee of Jewish Law and Standards

The Cantors Assembly has appointed me to be its representative to the CJLS (Committee of Jewish Law and Standards).  The CJLS is the body that writes legal responses for the Conservative Movement, and is comprised of many of its great thinkers.

I will serve a two-year term in that position, representing the Cantors Assembly.  It will give me a chance to participate in and help shape discussions about halachic matters that affect the everyday lives of Conservative Jews.  It is a great opportunity to learn from the best and be exposed to the process by which Jewish law is made.

I hope to be able to share my experience with the congregation.
