Do You Love Jewish Celebrations?
Judaic Treasures, WRJ’s premiere gift shop is located in the newly renovated Temple Emanu-El entrance foyer. Join our dedicated, friendly volunteers who help customers find the perfect gift or addition to their own home. Items needed for ongoing rituals are always in stock. You can have an impact on a young person’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah! Contact the Manager, Kay Schachter, also a volunteer, at 469-230-5195.
Hospitality and Welcoming
One of our primary missions is making all who come to our Temple feel welcome. As part of that mission, there is a small group of volunteers meeting on Friday mornings to prepare and plate the food and sweets that help to create a warm atmosphere for our popular Oneg Shabbats. If you are interested in participating on a regular or occasional basis, email firstname.lastname@example.org and your message will be forwarded to a WRJ coordinator. Men and women are welcome.
We also welcome participation through home baking. Please bring your PEANUT-FREE donation of sweets, with your name on it, to the Reception Desk, any time Thursdays and Fridays before 9:30 am. We’ll handle the rest, and thank you!
