VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

DC Minyan services and programming depend on the willingness of volunteers! Reach out to any program leaders about getting involved in their particular area. If you have any questions about whom to contact regarding a particular aspect of DC Minyan’s programming, please email the Volunteer Engagement Coordinator at volunteer@dcminyan.org.

Short term volunteer opportunities

We have heard from many members that you would like to hear about opportunities to help DC Minyan with short-term, discrete projects. We would be delighted to help you identify the right volunteer opportunity for you based on your interests and availability! Please email the Volunteer Engagement Coordinator at volunteer@dcminyan.org.

Mitzvah List

The DC Minyan Mitzvah List is an opt-in volunteer email list that is used to arrange food, logistical help, or other types of support during a challenging time. We encourage members to email mitzvah@dcminyan.org if they themselves need help or if they know someone who does, whether because of illness, accidents, unexpected situations, or absolutely any other reason. Please fill out this form to be added to the Mitzvah List so that you receive requests for support when they come in.

Bereavement Support

Please email bereavement@dcminyan.org to let us know if you or someone you know has experienced a loss. The Bereavement Committee supports our members through loss and mourning. This committee is responsible for coordinating shiva needs and general support when our members experience the loss of parents, spouses, siblings or children. A committee member will be the liaison for each individual mourner and will serve as the point-of-contact, assessing the mourner's initial needs and then checking in on an ongoing basis. Learn more about what the Bereavement Committee does and how they can help. Please email bereavement@dcminyan.org if you are interested in joining the Committee and more information.

Parents & Kids

We are lucky to have such a thriving community of young families and we aspire to meet kids’ and parents’ needs with a support network and with programming like Tot Shabbat, holiday celebrations, and more. If you are interested in helping with family programming, or being part of a Parents Committee, or in finding out more about kids and parents programming, please email parents@dcminyan.org.

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 10:15am 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 parents@dcminyan.org.

Hospitality

Invite someone new to lunch or dinner. Do that on the spot at services or by coordinating through our Hospitality committee, hospitality@dcminyan.org. Also email hospitality@dcminyan.org if you would like to be matched up for a meal. Read more about our hospitality program here.

Kiddush Committee

The Kiddush Committee is looking to expand our volunteer base of people interested in helping set up, clean up, or shop for Shabbat morning kiddush. If you love cutting pineapple, arranging lox, stacking oreos, or quality time in the kitchen, please complete this form so the Kiddush team can contact you!

The Kiddush Committee is also looking for new members to coordinate with weekly kiddush volunteers to ensure setup and cleanup run smoothly. Please email kiddush@dcminyan.org for more information about joining the committee.

Special Events

DC Minyan hosts a number of communal meals per year. The Special Events team is looking for help organizing these meals, including coordinating food orders and other logistics. Email specialevents@dcminyan.org.

SIGN UP TO 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.
