Volunteer Opportunities

Synagogues flourish when volunteerism is a value and commitment that helps form the identity of the community. Volunteerism strengthens the community by helping members form connections and friendships with their fellow members and by ensuring that vital services, programming, and governance are performed in a responsible and caring manner. Volunteerism also strengthens the individual because there is very little that is more fulfilling than doing for others, and being part of a larger whole.

Volunteering is a mitzvah, one that is ingrained in the culture of Or Hadash. Whether you want to help repair the building, tend the gardens, be an usher at services, help fellow members who are ill or grieving, or get involved with the school or governance, there is a place for you. There is a wide range of volunteer opportunities that will match both your interests and the amount of time you are able to donate.

We are a very warm and inclusive community, that not only values your membership, but also sincerely desires your engagement and participation. We recognize that “time” is one of your most precious resources, and we take seriously your commitment to “get involved.” Volunteering at Or Hadash is easy and fun, and you make a real difference in people's lives and in the general well-being of our Jewish community.

Questions about volunteer opportunities can be addressed to any member of the Board of Directors, committee chairs, the Rabbi, School Director or to the synagogue administrator.
