Ushers Needed!
Bring your own uniform.
Ann Smith is looking for some smiling greeters to welcome everyone to our in-house services on Shabbat and holidays. Please let the office know, or respond to this email if you're interested.
Currently, due to contact precautions, we are not assigning Aliyot or other honors, so our ushers will have limited duties.
