POSITIONS ON THE TEEN LEADERSHIP COUNCIL
You may apply for more than one position.
Chair of the Children’s Purim Carnival
Our Purim Carnival for children is Sunday, March 12.
While our carnival has always been a huge success, we need teens who have what it takes to re-think what a Purim carnival is, and how to make it more fun and enjoyable. If you are creative and dedicated this position is for you! Along with a few other teen volunteers you will be working to create a Purim Carnival 2.0 that will appeal to all ages.
Chair of the Purim Carnival for Guests from the WJCS
Following our Children’s Purim Carnival, is the WJCS Havurah Carnival for adults with special needs.
If you know how to brighten someone’s day, if you’re compassionate and creative this position is for you! The chair will recruit teens to volunteer at this meaningful program, and plan the games that we will play with our guests.
Preference will be given to applicants who have attended the carnival in the past, but it is not a requirement.
Class Shabbat Dinner Chair
If you love your Bet Torah class and want to help get everyone together this is the perfect position for you!
