Volunteerism at the Temple has been slow. Some of you have stepped up and showed your true colors. For that we say “Thank You”. There are still many areas where we could use your help. All we ask is to volunteer whatever time you can spare. Pick an area to volunteer that you have an expertise in, or just enjoy doing. It could be in the Temple or the School. Wherever you would like to spend your time helping out is appreciated. It could be as little as one hour a week or more. Whatever time you have to spare. The Temple is high maintenance. We have a small staff who works very hard to make sure everything is kept running the way it should be. But there are items that need to be taken care that are being put off because of timing; because of cost. Temple Beth-El is home to all of us, so please find the time to help out.
