Upcoming and Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
Got a great smile? Like making people feel good? Sign up to volunteer as an usher or greeter, and be the warm and welcoming face of BJ for over 3,500 people who come to High Holy Days services. Ushers help by handing out mahzorim, directing members to open seats, and making sure services run smoothly.
Want to be part of the effort that sustains this community? Volunteer to collect Kol Nidre pledge cards on Erev Yom Kippur. Help make the High Holy Days happen! To sign up, click here.
Our community is strongest when we care for each other in times of need. Do a deed of lovingkindness by connecting with members of the BJ community who are homebound, lonely, or in need of some extra care. With regular and consistent phone calls we can brighten the days and warm the hearts of those who need it most. Please contact Joni Brenner at ShabbatConnections@bj.org for more information on how you can help.
Have a spare half hour? Join our Hate Has No Home Here campaign. Summer is a great time to offer multi-language “Hate Has No Home Here” signs to local shopkeepers, restaurants, and businesses. A single sign can give hope and comfort to a passing undocumented immigrant, Muslim parent, or other targeted community member. And if you’re traveling, consider taking a few signs to Cape Cod, Maine, or Italy! For more information, contact Nora Gaines.
Thursdays | 11:30AM-1:00PM | 88th Street Frankel Hall
Every Thursday at BJ we welcome guests into our synagogue for a delicious lunch, friendly companionship, and music performed by a BJ member every other week. Join our lunch program by volunteering and taking part in the warm and welcoming atmosphere we offer to our guests. To learn more about this opportunity or to volunteer contact Larissa Wohl or call x272.
