If it takes a village to raise a child it takes a town to run a synagogue! We have an incredible group of Community Makers who ensure the FPS wheels keep turning. We hope being a Community Maker is enjoyable, a great way to meet new people, and have a peek at the inner workings of community life.

Many of the volunteering roles are over Shabbat:

  • Tech Wizards: support our sound, camera and streaming
  • Kiddush makers: putting out and clearing away our delicious kiddush
  • Online Hosts: welcoming members online and managing the Zoom room.
  • Welcomers: welcoming members into the synagogue and providing information when needed
  • Security Wardens: working with our professional security staff to keep everyone safe.
  • Lay leaders: leading services and reading Torah

There are still plenty of non-Shabbat and service-related volunteering opportunities:

  • Organising events
  • Visiting our elderly and bereaved members
  • Working with a charity
  • Managing projects
  • Even singing or gardening!
  • Social Action and Social Justice teams
  • Supporting Ukrainian, Syrian and Afghani refugees
  • Working with the local council to create a more eco-friendly local area
  • Improving youth mental health in Barnet

Just to name a few! There are endless ways to get involved and we value everyone’s contribution.
