Volunteering at MHS
Get involved at MHS however you can. However much or little time you have and whatever you're interested in, - there's something for you.
There’s so many things at our shul, that happen because volunteers make them happen. Whilst our professional staff do a wonderful job, the volunteers contribute in so many ways.

Or devise your own event or project – just talk to Eli or the Rabbi who will help you put it on.
I started leading visits of local schoolchildren to the synagogue as a way of helping to counter the negative impressions about Jews and Judaism that are out there in the press and (more recently) electronic media. It is very rewarding, after a session, to hear them say how much they have learned or how much they enjoyed it. And the positive comments of the teachers and accompanying adults are a further bonus.
