Hop-to-it and become a volunteer at our 'Little Shul' today.

Whether you can donate one hour, one week, or one hour per week to help out your community, browse the many "Little Shul' volunteer opportunities listed below to get involved today!  It will feel good too; the love you get is equal to the love you give! Even work alongside your child(ren) and be a great Jewish role model for them.

Some of our volunteer opportunities include;

1. Pay It Forward One Day at a Time;

Many of our services, events and programs would not be possible * without the help of " day-of " volunteers.

* Set-up tables/chairs, assemble the Sukkah, be the BBQ person at a picnic;
* Welcome and register attendees;
* Become a trained Lay Leader of religious services;
* Volunteer for office work;
* Share your professional expertise with others by leading an Adult Education class

2. Join a Committee

Help shape and carry out the goals of our 'Little Shul' by joining a committee. You do not need to live near the Shul to get involved; remote participation via Skype and phone conference is encouraged. We are an open and participatory congregation. There is no 'inner circle' or barriers to participation, no minimum donation to make. 

Clicking on the name of the committee will open an e-mail to that committee's chairperson so you can communicate your interest directly. In the event a committee chairship is open, the e-mail will go to Joe in the office and it will be forwarded to the appropriate Board member.

3. Work Kehilat HaNahar into Your Weekly Routine:

If you have a few hours each week to dedicate to our community, consider volunteering:

* Help in the Shul School as a tutor;
* Join our Mitzvah Committee to serve the elderly, sick, and hungry;
* Extend the hours our Shul Office has phone coverage;
*  Enjoy gardening? Help to beautify our 11 acres of gardens and woods;
* Keep our Facebook page updated;
* Take pictures, add captions & upload to our website and Facebook page

* Contact us at and we can help customize your volunteer experience!

We are a relatively small community trying to accomplish many 'big' things for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren. We cordially invite you to help us to be able to keep helping you, and others, thrive in the greater Delaware River Valley that we all call home.

Our 'Little Shul by the River' not only wants you, we need you to volunteer today.

P.S. The mileage driven to volunteer may be tax-deductible for you? Consult your professional tax advisor for details.

* Did you know that Rabbi Diana is our Shul's ONLY full-time employee? Stacey Frank, our education director, works 20 hours a week. Joe Lewin, our office administrator, also works about 20 hours a week. Our bookkeeper works four hours a week. That's all!  All other duties and responsibilities are covered by people like you; members who volunteer their time, energy, and yes, even money at times. Volunteers are truly the lifeblood of our 'Little Shul'. We have accomplished much in our first 24 years, and there is much more to be accomplished.
