Temple Shaari Emeth participates in the Freehold Clergy Association Emergency Housing and Advocacy Program. You can read about the program in a recent article published in the Asbury Park Press.
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
- *NEW - 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)
*For those of you that have volunteered in the past, there is a recent change to the program for 2016-2017. The Freehold Clergy Association will be providing a paid male security guard at each location where the men are housed. The guard will be sitting in the room with the men at the temple overnight. As a result, we will only need ONE volunteer and the volunteer(s) can be male or female. 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: firstname.lastname@example.org / Phone: 732-690-6217.
