High Holy Day Volunteers Needed!

High Holy Days are just around the corner! Bet Mishpachah is looking for volunteers to lead services, write newsletter articles, and generally help make the High Holy Days a welcoming and meaningful experience.  If you are interested, please fill out this form.  Questions?  Email HHD Coordinators Ruth Potts, Vinny Prell, and Rachel Wolkowitz at BetMishHHD@gmail.com

Northern Virginia Chavura Needs You!

The NOVA Chavura has hosted a variety of events, including a pool party in Alexandria, a bagel brunch in McLean, and a fireplace chat in Vienna. In other years we have played miniature golf, watched Israeli movies, toured art exhibits, shared a catered dinner, learned about Jewish philosophy, and enjoyed a wine tasting event. In order to continue scheduling approximately one event in each calendar quarter, we need a special volunteer who enjoys talking on the phone. This person will be responsible for identifying people interested in hosting a chavura and for following up with them to identify two or three optional dates. This might take as much as two hours a month. The chair of the Northern Virginia chavura will be responsible for the actual scheduling, coordination, and walking the host (if a first time host) through the process. If you are interested in being this special volunteer, please contact novachavura@betmish.org.
