One of the key principles of Kehilat Hadar is a spirit of volunteerism. In fact, our community is entirely volunteer led: the Shamash Team runs the ritual aspect of services; the Steering Team is responsible for coordinating the day-today running of Kehilat Hadar; and other community leaders and volunteers are responsible for specific roles and programs. (Learn more about Kehilat Hadar’s board, which oversees the community’s strategic vision, high-level planning, and fundraising efforts.) Our community relies on the generosity of its volunteers to lead and attend services, plan and execute programs, and generally work to enhance our community. We encourage you to get involved!
