TSA Volunteer

The concept of tikun olamrepair the world—expresses the value of volunteering in Judaism. The world may be imperfect, but we have not only the opportunity, but really the obligation to help make it better, more whole. In fact, the world really depends on people being active not only in their own lives, but in their community’s destiny, too.
 How can I help, you may ask?
  • Assist with the Torah Schedule (See Frank)
  • Volunteer to assist with the children’s program. (See Katie)
  • Donate school supplies (pens, paper, crayons, markers, glue sticks, and stickers-see Katie)
  • Attention Parents! Clean up the children’s area/nursery before going home. (Sisterhood-see Sharon)
  • Buying and refilling the water for upstairs (Sisterhood)
  • Shaking & gathering tablecloths to launder (Sisterhood)
  • Can you play an instrument? Do you sing or dance? (Contact Phil/Rabanit)
  • Assist the worship team with pulling and filing music. (Sisterhood)
  • Volunteer to manage overhead during Shabbat services. (Sisterhood)





One of the goals of the Tsemach Adonai Outreach Committee is to create or find opportunities to meet people in the Jewish community and build relationships. “Mitzvah Match” is the result.

 Mitzvah Match” was created to match “Chai House Residents that need tasks done in their apartments” with “Tsemach Adonai people who can do the job”. 

Chai House is a Senior Residential Community in San Jose, with a population that is approximately 40% Jewish.  Doing mitzvot is an opportunity to reach out with “good deeds”: ‘to the Jew first and also to the Gentile’, and meet people on a “one-on-one” basis, begin communication and possibly, give an invitation to visit Tsemach in the future. 

If you would like to become part of this Outreach, please speak to Savta, or another member of the Outreach Committee: R. Charlie, Kayla, or Sharon.  We’ll all meet and brainstorm together to make this work. All active participants will get a Mitzvah Match tee shirt.
