Shabbat Ushers and Greeters Needed!

Coming back to Shabbat services in the Sanctuary is a joy!

It would be great if we could offer a warm welcome at the door!  If you can come a bit earlier (9:45) to greet people and introduce yourself to newcomers and guests, we’d love for you to be Emanu-El’s welcoming smile.

It’s our hope to create a roster so that this commitment can be shared among many.

You can volunteer on your own, with a friend or with your whole family.

If this is something you’d like to do for the community, please contact Susan
