Create an Account!
You will need to have an account set up with our new volunteer portal To create an account, just go to Rebeccas Tent Volunteer Account. After you’ve created your account and logged in, come back to this page (Rebeccas Tent Volunteer Steps) and click on one of the links above to access volunteer opportunities.
The information in your account is for us to send reminders or notify you of changes. It won’t be shared. If you already have an account, you’ll need to sign in, using the “login” link at the top left of any page on the portal, or by clicking here. It is easiest to sign in or create an account before you search for opportunities. But you can view what’s available without an account.
For the opportunities that are connected to a specific date and time
When you click on the link in the above list, you will see the catalog of available dates in chronological order. You can scroll to the day you want and just hit the “Sign Up” button. Remember, you need to be logged in to sign up.
There is also a calendar view, though it is a little slow, so I recommend the “catalog” view described above. But if you want to view this as a calendar, click on the “View in Calendar” button to the left. Then scroll to the date you want to claim, then click on the calendar entry. Below will appear the description, and you can click on the red “Sign Up” button. Calendar entries vanish as they are claimed.
If you’re signing up for several dates, the easiest thing to do is to return to this page after signing up for the first date, and click again on the link in the above list, which opens up the sign ups in a new tab of your browser. Sorry, I know that’s a little unwieldy.
For the opportunities that have flexible dates
You will see a detailed description of what is needed. Contact the person named, set a date/time, and we’ll sign you up.
Thank you again for volunteering. If you need help with the sign up process, please contact Morris Cohen, Rebecca’s Tent board member and designated “Tech Guy”, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about specific volunteer opportunities, contact the person listed at the sign-up page.
Bring A Meal
Make Sure Our Ladies Eat Well!
by Shelter Food Chairperson at Congregation Etz Chaim, Robyn Spiegel
A place for shelter, solace, and a place to get fed.
Downhearted and despair, they often feel.
Their spirits can be lifted by enjoying a hearty meal.
By providing a nutritious dinner...a warm gift from the heart!
Partner with another family, or prepare a meal with a friend,
Serving the community is an important message to send.
By volunteering to provide a meal for just one day!
Your support is critical, so do not wait!
Partake in the mitzvah...
Secure your date!"
