Helping by Hosting

There are many volunteer opportunities to help at B’nai Israel. Two of these are to host the student rabbi for Shabbat dinner, and to provide the Oneg after Shabbat service.

Shabbat dinner can be in your home or at a local restaurant. The host is expected to pick up the student’s tab, but other guests you invite will pay their own.

The Oneg need not be elaborate. A challah and other light refreshments (fruit, cookies,etc) will be appreciated.
