WRJ Temple Emanuel Bagel Table Sign U

WRJ is sponsoring the Bagel Bar again this year to provide refreshments for those who come to share time at the temple on Sunday mornings.  We are open from 8:30 am to 11:30 am, and we need volunteers to help set up, sell, and clean up each Sunday that Sunday School is held throughout the year.  Please note: the Bagel Table will stop selling Bagels to Religious School students at 8:50am since most students will be going to the Sanctuary at 9:00am for Tefilah. However, the bagel table will remain open for the adults until 11:30am.

In addition to a Bagel Bar lead, which will come from a pool of experienced volunteers, we are looking to have two more volunteers assist with the Bagel Bar each week.  One of the volunteers will help from start to finish – 8 am to noon.  The other volunteer will support set up and the morning rush – from 8 to 9:30.  It’s a fun and friendly place to spend the morning.  Many people in our community count on the bagels, muffins, and drinks as a part of their weekly Sunday routine.  Come join us!  We need your help to continue to provide this valuable service for our community!

Please volunteer on Sign-Up Genius
We are looking forward to seeing you!
