Temple Volunteers

Volunteers are crucial for providing great service to members and visitors, hosting activities and keeping the Temple running smoothly with a small staff. We are always in need of new volunteers. Contact us to find out about volunteering for any these roles or other opportunities.

Religious Service Greeters: A warm welcome makes such a difference. Volunteer to greet congregants and potential new members upon arrival to Shabbat services. You also can volunteer at the Temple and celebrate with congregants by sponsoring a nosh before one of our services.

Nosh Committee: Members of this committee will arrive one hour prior to the nosh start time to plate food, set up, and serve the nosh before Shabbat.  You don’t need to commit to every Friday to help!  Many Shabbats are already covered by chavurot, B’nai Mitzvah families and other groups.  The committee will be responsible for the nosh during the weeks that are not sponsored by a family or group.  The committee will decide how to best cover these “unsponsored” noshes. The Temple provides funding for unsponsored noshes so the committee is not volunteering to cook or supply food or beverages—though a little help with shopping would be appreciated!

High Holiday Ushers: Greet congregants and pass out prayer books.

High Holiday Schleppers: These do-gooders help organize the “High Holiday schlep”.

Front Desk Support: Help to answer phones and greet potential members and congregants during office hours.

Facilities: We’re on the hunt for handy people! Interested in volunteering your time, hands and/or skills to help keep our synagogue looking it’s best? We’re looking for a few good men and women to serve on a facilities committee, helping to do routine handy projects around the building such as paint touch up, light bulb swaps, chuppah assembly and more.

Judaica Shop: Temple Emanuel is home to the primary Judaica shop in the East Valley. Join a staff of volunteers and help out at the holidays or on a weekly basis. It’s a wonderful way to meet other temple members, give back to the community, or stay busy while kids are in religious school.
