Toranut Program at YITH

Thank you to all who have contributed, in different ways, to Young Israel of Toco Hills (YITH). We, the shul board, are proud to be part of this vibrant, engaged, and rapidly growing shul community.

In the spirit of building on the work of so many, and increasing broad engagement among our members, we are excited to share with you a new initiative, the YITH Toranut Program (YTP). At its core, YTP is an additional way of building community through shared responsibility for shul upkeep. It is also a way for us to show Kavod for our space, and for our custodial staff, by assisting them to help keep our shul clean and welcoming for all our members and guests.

 

Each member/family has been assigned 1 Shabbat morning during the year to help out at the shul. This includes assisting our custodial staff with Kiddush preparation, setup and cleanup and returning sefarim after services. Each week, Israel Gersten will send an email to the Hosts of Toranut with all the information needed.

 

We strive for 100% participation. However we recognize that certain people will require special dispensations due to certain circumstances. We have tried our best to identify those people already, however, if you would like a dispensation, please reach out to Israel Gersten, who will assist you.

 

Please see below the list of assigned weekends. If you cannot participate on your assigned weekend, we ask that you get another member to switch with you and then send an email to Israel Gersten at igerst@hotmail.com with the names of the families to be switched.

 

This program will help us strengthen our community through shared responsibility and at the same time, reinforce for us – and especially our children – the importance of showing kavod for our shul and our staff. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Israel Gersten at igerst@hotmail.com or call the synagogue office at (404) 315-1417.
