Volunteer Opportunities

Helping HandsCompassion is at the heart of our community—kindness to those who suffer and grieve, as well as joy with those who celebrate. Our Caring Community provides helping hands for congregants as they face some of the most challenging moments in life. 

We can't help if we don't know who needs help, so please contact us when you or someone you care about needs care from our community. 

I want to help.

I don't have time to volunteer, but I want to help!

The Caring Community's budget comes directly from Temple Sinai’s Caring Community Fund. Your gift, in honor or memory of a friend or loved one, will help us to pay it forward. Please consider a donation to the Caring Community Fund so that we can continue providing support and comfort to the members of Temple Sinai.
