LEND A HAND!
In addition to ongoing volunteer positions, we're always looking for people to lend a hand in smaller ways. Here are a few ways you can help. You can volunteer every week, every so often, or on a single Shabbat. This is a great way for people interested in short term DC Minyan volunteer opportunities to get involved. Please sign up using the form below.
- Help with Kiddush: Sign up to help with Kiddush set-up and clean-up.
- Come on-time: Sign up to come on-time at 9:15 a.m. to help make a minyan.
- Be a greeter: Serving as a greeter is a great and easy opportunity to help with DC Minyan hospitality and welcome people to our community. Greeters will be present during and after Shabbat services and other events to meet new people and introduce them to DC Minyan.
- Host a guest at your meal: This lets the hospitality team know to reach out to you when looking to place a guest at shabbat or chag meal.
- Lead services or chant Torah or Haftorah. One of our gabbais will be in touch with you to review the service.

HELP LEAD TOT SHABBAT FOR KIDS 3 AND UNDER
The Parents & Kids Committee is looking to expand the pool of teachers for Tot Shabbat for our youngest members (3 and under), which takes place on Shabbat mornings at 10:15 am for 30-45 minutes. There is already a curriculum and a catalog of songs that can be used as a foundation for the class. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
Invite someone new to lunch or dinner. Do that on the spot one day at services or by coordinating through our Hospitality committee, email@example.com. Or, if you would like to be matched up for a meal, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submit an item for our weekly bulletin by emailing a brief paragraph to email@example.com.
