August 30 – 6:30 p.m.
The High Holy Days are time when our congregational family looks forward to coming together to worship. Our greeters are a vital component to ensuring a peaceful and secure atmosphere. We are seeking congregants to supplement those greeters drawn from our Board of Trustees and Shabbat Welcome Team. There are lots of ways to help. Greeters need no special prior knowledge or skill. We will teach you everything you need to know at the orientation. To volunteer, contact Merav at (203)288-3877.
