Beth Emet is a diverse, multigenerational Reform community with a dynamic approach to Judaism. Our congregation seeks to create a spiritually vibrant, socially conscious, intellectually challenging, and deeply caring environment firmly rooted in Jewish tradition and values.

Ozerim, Beth Emet's volunteer corps of "helpers," have been strengthening connections among Beth Emet congregants in their times of need for more than 40 years.

Thanks to volunteers, our congregation has been able to prepare and deliver hundreds of meals, provide countless rides to medical appointments and synagogue events, and offer comfort and support in numerous other ways, including:

Cooking and delivering a Shabbat Connection meal every Friday. Recipients may be congregants living with illness, moving into a new home, welcoming a new baby, or mourning a loved one.
Providing rides to medical appointments, worship services and synagogue functions.
Leading shiva minyans.
Delivering Purim baskets to congregants.

We always welcome new volunteers. The time commitment is small, but the opportunity to share the gift of community is large. We especially need cooks, drivers, and volunteers willing to be trained to lead shiva minyans.

To volunteer fior Shabbat Connections, please contact Arlene Berke or Tami Manton. To volunteer to lead or partcipate in shiva minyans, please contact Susan Melczer or Jack Levie
