Temple Shaari Emeth participates in the Emergency Housing and Advocacy Program's winter shelter program. You can read about the program in a previous article published in the Asbury Park Press.
You can also view this YouTube VIDEO from two years ago when the youth group prepared dinner for the men.
Each Saturday evening from December through March volunteers are needed for the following:
- One volunteer to provide and serve a hot meal for approximately 12 men
- At least ONE volunteer to stay overnight at the Temple (male or female)
- One volunteer to deliver food for breakfast on Sunday morning (this is delivered a few days in advance)
*A security guard is present and sits in the room with the men overnight. You are not required to stay awake all night and we have two self-inflating air mattresses that you can use to sleep comfortably in the temple office.
If you are a new overnight volunteer, I will meet with you or set up a phone call to discuss all of the details the week before you are scheduled to stay at the temple. Please call me if you have questions about how things work before you sign up.
Please register to below to volunteer. If you have questions or would like more information about what is involved, please email or call Michael Holzer. Email: email@example.com / Phone: 732-690-6217.
