Every year during each of the High Holy Day services, a dedicated group of members volunteer as ushers and greeters.  And in so doing, we fulfill the mitzvah of hachnasat orchim (welcoming guests).  We all know how good it feels when we walk into the sanctuary, having been warmly greeted.  During the High Holy Days, our ushers and greeters:

      Enhance our community’s worship by providing warm greetings to congregants and guests alike
     •  Assist in directing people to prayer books, programs, kipot, tallit, and other worship items
       Help direct worshippers to their respective services and seats
       Assist the clergy by maintaining the solemnity of the service
       Answer a variety of questions

Over the years we have welcomed new members to our ushering and greeting corps and have seen some retire.  Some of our ushers and greeters are empty nesters, some have young school-age children, and some are young professionals. We have more than 100 ushering slots to fill and are looking to the entire Adas Israel community to help us.

If you would like to do more than attend the High Holy Day services this year, consider participating as a volunteer.  We need ushers and greeters for all services, so no matter which service you attend, we can use your help at a time that would be convenient for you. The time commitment is about 2 hours per shift.

Please join us for an usher orientation on Sunday, September 10th at 2:00pm. This orientation will include a working dinner and then a specific tour and training for the location you will be ushering in.
