4) Help ‘Green’ Jerusalem
Jerusalem is in the midst of a long term campaign to develop its community gardens and lower its carbon footprint. The community garden in Talpiot is run by the local residents and needs help in their expansion where they grow vegetables and flowers. Come work with the residents and their children.  Snacks and Jewish source learning with discussions on repairing the world.  For more information, or to sign up, please be in touch with Roni at 02-623-2224or  
5) Hospitality Volunteers?
We are continuing to make preparations to launch a new Hospitality program for the coming year, and need you help to insure its success.  If you are open to host visitors to the shul (not to mention regulars as well who might need hospitality from time to time), please e-mail with your contact information.  It does not matter if you’re able to host once a week or once a year; your participation at any level is greatly appreciated.
When sending your information, please also note if you are open to hosting students during Rosh Hashana, as we anticipate have a number of visiting groups during this time.
Shabbat Shalom
