Shabbat Services/Kiddish Helpers Needed
Are you a person who has been attending our Shabbat services and enjoying our kiddishes for years now, and often wonder: how can I help?  Or are you new to Shir Libeynu but see a place for yourself among other volunteers who assist in keeping this shul running, especially on Shabbos?  Are  you a person who can meet, greet, help with seating, attend to the needs of our elderly and disabled members in line for food, clean up after kiddishes?  If the answer to all or one of these is "YES," we need you at our Saturday morning Shabbat services and kiddishes, even if you can only attend one or a few of the upcoming:  (Shir Libeynu All Year Long)  You will work with Harriet, the Shabbat coordinator, and our staff and other volunteers so you know what we need.  But you will be doing a big mitzvah for us, and we will thank you with unlimited (within reason) rugelah!  Write to:  shabbatcoordinator@shirlibeynu.ca.   Click here for a further breakdown of the tasks involved (all or some).

We thank those who already help or have recently volunteered to do so.
