Volunteer Opportunities

One of Temple Israel's main focuses is tikkun olam (repairing the world).  Below are several volunteer opportunities and collection drives that are offered for members to perform mitzvot.

Hilltop Community Worship Center Free Meal Program

Two - three representatives from Temple Israel help every Wednesday evening from 5:30 to 8:00 PM.  Volunteer duties include greeting people as they come in, serving meals, speaking to congregants and clean up. 

Sign up at the link below.  The experience will warm you as well as the guests. Sign up HERE!

Jordan's Crossing

Jordan's Crossing is a resource center on the west side of Columbus for those impacted by substance use and homelessness. Temple Israel congregants will bake 10 large challahs one Friday a month at Simply Special Catering. Two congregants will then deliver the challah and serve it at Jordan's Crossing.

Social Justice Team

Temple Israel is committed to Tikkun Olam, the repair of our broken world. We strive to guide our congregation's social justice work through education, programming, direct service opportunities, and advocacy within our Central Ohio community and beyond. We have several different organizations that we are working with.

Click here to see and sign up for volunteer opportunities that we are offering this year. The co-chairs of the projects will reach out to you by email for the next steps in getting involved.

Mitzvah Angels

Our Temple Israel community has proven time and again that it is a community of givers, a community of doers. When there is a need in our broader community or within our temple, our Temple Israel family has stepped in to perform acts of generosity and selflessness. There are, indeed, mitzvah angels among us!

We have many opportunities to perform  mitzvot within our Temple Israel community, as well as in our Columbus community. Show your spirit of generosity and make a difference in repairing the world around us. Click here to view and sign up for available volunteer opportunities.
