Our Volunteers

Congregation Or Chadash Grows Because of Its Volunteers

Volunteers are the backbone of our Congregation. Without their help and support Congregation Or Chadash would not be the dynamic and successful organization it is today. Volunteers serve on the Board. Volunteers work on Social Action projects. Volunteers plan and organize social events such as the Purim and Chanukah parties as well as couples’ dinners and art auctions. Volunteers work on so many of our committees. Volunteers sing in the adult and youth choirs. Volunteers do so much for our Congregation!

We salute them all. We extend to them our sincerest appreciation. And we are not too shy to say that we have many more opportunities for members from all backgrounds and with all levels of experience to volunteer and contribute to the synagogue.
