High Holidays – Volunteer Opportunities

September 11, 2013

It’s that time of year again, as we busily wrap up all of our preparations for High Holiday services. Havurah Shalom is well known for our Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services at the Tiffany Center. They are open to the Portland Jewish community at large, open to everyone, free of charge, no tickets required. We can do this because every member of the Havurah community helps out. Some of us take on roles that are spread over many months of planning and organizing, while others sign up for other tasks, such as taking on an usher shift or two. All tasks, large and small, are equally critical for everything to come together and run smoothly during the Days of Awe. If you think you would like to help, please check out the following volunteer opportunities.

WILL YOU HELP?
If you see something you can help with, please let us know (just click on an activity’s let us know link, in the table below). Thank you!

Purim Celebrations 2013 at Havurah

February 7, 2013

Purim 2013 4 Web Page

 


CELEBRATIONS FOR EVERYBODY

(especially families with kids, 14 years and under)


FEBRUARY 23, 4:30 – 6:00 PM

Have FUN, make hamentashen, make fools of ourselves, enjoy costumes, singing, a special interactive telling of the Purim story, and a POTLUCK DINNER (please bring a vegetarian main dish that feeds eight or more people OR a dessert plus side dish.)

HAMENTASHEN Bake-Off (calling all bakers!) Do you favor apricot filling? Prune, poppyseed, Nutella? We love ‘em all and there’s never too many. Please bring a batch to share. You might win the prize of your lifetime! Or just bring some hamantashen to share and don’t be judged!

NOISE MAKING Although we won’t have a complete reading of the Megilla, there will be plenty of opportunities to drown out the name of you-know-who. We continue to support the Community Warehouse by asking folks to bring new or used pots and pans, spatulas, wooden spoons, and silverware (especially forks and knives) to bang as noisemakers (then we’ll donate them).

COSTUMES The sky is the limit – bring your own, or borrow from the Havurah Purim box.

PLEASE RSVP
by February 20
(include family names, kids’ age, and if bringing hamantashen)



CELEBRATIONS FOR 7th AND 8th GRADERS

FEBRUARY 23, 4:00 – 8:00 PM

First, the Purim Carnival at Havurah. Then a party at somebody’s house. Please contact Constance Plager for more information.
