High Holidays Summer and Fall Prep

Kol Tzedek's generous volunteers make the High Holidays possible each year, and we need a little help from everyone. September may seem far away, but we're starting preparation now--if you've got a little time this summer we can especially use your help. If you can give just an hour or two helping put up flyers in the weeks beforehand, setting up chairs during the High Holidays, or ushering at an event, you'll be part of what keeps Kol Tzedek going. The  High Holiday Volunteer Chart shows a few of the volunteer opportunities available for High Holidays and where we especially need your help.  You don't need to be a member--volunteering is a great way to learn what we're all about before you decide if you'd like to join.

OK--Yes Please! I want to volunteer!


1)  Click on the High Holiday Volunteer Chart, and see what you can offer.
2) Send us an email at volunteering@kol-tzedek.org telling us how you'd like to help (and tell us your phone number or best email address to use) and we'll add your name to the sheet and make sure we remind you. Can't do any of the things listed? Email us and say so--we'll find something for you to do, we promise.

Thanks for being part of what makes KT work!

Kol Tehilla, Friday June 26

This coming Friday evening, Kol Tzedek will put on another Kol Tehilla—complete with band and tons of ruach (spirit).  There may even be spontaneous dancing around the chapel!
It will be the last Kol Tehilla until after the High Holidays.  There will be many guests and community members, so I’ll need some extra help ushering and greeting.  The first shift for ushers and greeters is 6:15 to 6:45, the second one from 6:45 until 7:15.  Since I’ll arrive extra early to set up the chapel and sound system, I don’t need additional help with those tasks.
Please let me (Jim)  know if you can help in any way by emailing logistics@kol-tzedek.org.  Thanks so much!  Putting on a Kol Tehilla is a lot of work—totally worth it—and it’ll be much easier with your assistance.  Remember that 'avodah', or worship, can also be translated as work.

Why volunteer?

We were talking about volunteering at a meeting, and I agreed to give a little testimonial on the benefits of volunteering.   Contributing to the community is what makes me really feel like I'm a part of it and it provides a chance to get to know new people.  While I'm often tempted to leave an oneg without helping clean up, putting dishes away in the kitchen makes me feel like I'm at home, and don't most of us want that from our synagogue, that it should feel like our home?
