Ohav Shalom Shabbat Greeters

Thank you for signing up to be a Greeter at Ohav Shalom!

It always feels good to receive a warm welcome when you come to Shabbat services, especially if you are a guest. Shabbat Greeters provide a welcoming smile and wishes of “Shabbat Shalom,” and that welcome adds to the Shabbat experience. Today however, Shabbat Greeters do more. Shabbat Greeters help keep Ohav and all who visit us safe. The leadership of our synagogue has been advised by our law enforcement partners that Shabbat Greeters are a critical component of an effective security program. Shabbat Greeters are more likely to know who belongs, engage new people and generally helps to make sure our open door is secure. To be effective, we need YOU! All congregants are welcome to take a turn. There will be teams of two, and training will be provided.

To make it easier for volunteering, we have broken down the volunteering shifts into 2 different shifts.

Please review the available dates below and check the box to sign up for dates that work for you. We appreciate your efforts and thank you for joining with your Ohav family to keep our Shabbat door open and our worship secure.
