‘The List’ is a Volunteer Campaign and we hope everyone in our Temple family will step up and put their names and favourite ways of volunteering in our database so we can call on you when there are projects to be done.

Volunteers are always welcome! From general office work, handyman jobs, fundraising, library, event management, food preparation and more…at Temple Anshe Sholom we consider this holy work and a chance for all of us to give from the heart.
