Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer opportunities deepen the bonds within the Am Shalom community.  We consider our members partners in our collective effort to strengthen Jewish life for our community. We encourage each person to contribute their skills, passions, and resources to whatever level they can. There are many ways to volunteer – in community-building events, social justice opportunities or project work. We've further identified these opportunities as: One Time Opportunities, Ongoing Projects and Ideal for Families. Below are some of the opportunities from which to choose:
