The 6th Annual Jewish Volunteer Day is coming up on Wednesday, December 12th, starting at 9:00 am and finishing at 4 pm
at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
in San Francisco.
Our very own Rabbi Doug Kahn will lead a spirited volunteer rally to kick off the event. Volunteers will have the option of several engaging direct-service opportunities, including working at the Project Homeless Connect Café and Food Bank, serving as a client escort, or as a Jewish community greeter. Volunteers are a key component to making the day a success, as they help orient clients and feel comfortable while they receive services. Groups will be able to sign up together for the same activity if they wish, and can sign up for partial, or whole day shifts. There will be a Jewish service learning component to the day, led by a local rabbi, for volunteers who are interested. Lunch, and t-shirts are provided. Registration is open now.
Volunteers can sign up here or or contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
