Here at Congregation Beth Torah, we have a wonderful and supportive community built around volunteering and involvement within our Congregation. There is an opportunity for every person to get involved with something they’re passionate about while building lifelong friendships and connections.
Contact the office for more information about any of these connections. We look forward to seeing you!
Worship and Prayer
- Torah Reader: Can you read or chant Torah? This is the perfect activity for you to get involved in our worship while sharpening your Hebrew skills.
- Singing, Playing, & Praying: Reach out to Music Director Emily Tummons to find ways to engage in CBT's musical life. From sing-alongs at Village Shalom residents with the Men's Group, to playing your instrument in our Simchat Torah Band, to praying with your community at Contemplation Nights, discover your own doorway to a rich, vibrant, and robust spirituality.
- Participate in the life of the school: After you grab a bagel on Sunday morning or a slice of pizza on Wednesday evening there is room for you to participate in the life of the Weiner Religious School. Let Rabbi Kleinman know if this opportunity catches your eye.
Acts of Loving Kindness
- Blood Drives: Join the growing community of regular blood donors who participate in our quarterly blood drives. Check our website for upcoming dates and times to make a difference in someone’s life.
