Whether you can offer one day per year, or several hours per week, we are so grateful for your commitment to the growth and vibrancy of our synagogue community.

Help prepare kiddush: Join us in the CBI kitchen to prepare kiddush lunch for the community.

Be a greeter at services: Welcome congregants as they arrive at shul on Shabbat.

Setup and cleanup at events: Help with chairs, tables, food, and sound equipment at events and services.

Welcome new members: Deliver welcome bags and plan new member gatherings as part of the membership committee.  

Offer care: Add your name to the list of volunteers who provide care to our community. See the Chesed Committee information below.

Visit those in need: See the Bikkur Holim information below. 

Invite community members to your holiday or Shabbat table: If you have an extra place at your gathering  for a member who is alone, please let us know. This includes Shabbat, Jewish holidays, and Thanksgiving.

Bikkur Holim Committee
Bikkur Holim is the Jewish tradition of providing comfort and support to people who are ill.  Opportunities are available to make short monthly visits to Jewish patients at Cooley Dickinson Hospital or to CBI Seniors who would welcome a short visit. Contact Norbert Goldfield or Ellen Gertzog - Co-Chairs

Chesed Committee
This committee focuses on helping others in our community, such as the elderly, those who have suffered a loss, those suffering from illness, or those who are homebound, isolated and/or otherwise in distress. Our committee is looking for volunteers. There are many ways you can help including:
1) Make a simple phone call to check in with someone who is not well;
2) Offer a short drive to an appointment;
3) Run an errand such as picking up some groceries; 4) Make a warm, home-cooked meal;
5) Support a family as they prepare for shiva.
