Producing our High Holy Days services is truly a labor of love for us, but it takes hundreds of volunteers to make sure everything is in place so that our celebrations run smoothly. If you have a little time to contribute, we'd love to have your help. Click one or more of the links below to volunteer for your choice of good deeds.

Our services and programs will be offered both in-person and virtually, so we'll have roles for all types of volunteers, whether you're at home or online. Some of the tasks that require volunteers include:

Shleppers are needed to move a variety of heavy and large items between Etz Chayim and the Oshman Family JCC. The truck for moving the items will be provided. 

We need all sorts of logistical volunteers for things like setup and takedown of services and movement of smaller items

The Rosh HaShanah Oneg needs many volunteers for both setting up the Oneg and supplying foods to share. 

The Rosh HaShanah second day service at Etz requires a greeter and an usher. Click here to sign up to bring something to the second day service potluck.

We need someone to help clean up after our Yom Kippur Break Fast

Ushers are needed to direct people, check for name tags, and help find available seats. Contact David to learn more.

Zoom security operators, Zoom co-hosts, and A/V experts must have home access to a solid high-speed internet connection; the up-to-date Zoom client installed, ideally with a large monitor or multiple monitors; and a tablet or phone for back-channel communication with other Zoom volunteers during the event. Zoom security operators make sure that internet safety procedures are in place for each service or activity. A/V experts will monitor the quality and consistency of the virtual experience.  The Zoom co-host will assist in managing the Zoom experience from home.


If you have questions about getting involved, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Karen Bergen.
