Volunteers Needed

Lend a Helping Hand

Did you hear? We’re turning 75! 

Please take a look at these volunteer opportunities and sign up for what you’re interested in. You can help as little or as much as you want, but we can’t do this without you! 


This is also a great opportunity for students to receive their service hours, if their school offers the program. 

Green Team

This new BTEE Green Team committee is tasked with devising and implementing sustainability projects; deciding if we become a member congregation of Interfaith Power and Lighand/or work toward the certificate of sustainability from Hazon.


Projects may include solar power for the facility, planting a garden, making onegs (desserts / snacks following services) zero-waste, doing an energy audit and more.

Questions: Contact Beth Marcus


Join the Green Team if you: 

  • Are interested in sustainability and helping to determine priorities for BTEE and ECC

  • Want to implement programs within our community



Landscape Committee

Now that our entrance is looking snazzy, let’s give the rest of our landscape some TLC. Our new BTEE Landscape Committee will help beautify the gardens lining Glenoaks. 


Participation can be minimal (discussing a vision, comparing bids) or more involved (helping to decide on plants and actually doing some of the physical leg-work of planting).  Whether you’re interested in joining our committee or have a landscaper you can recommend, let us know.

Questions: Contact Dannah Ziegert

Join the Landscape Committee if you:

  • Enjoy working with your hands

  • Like spending time outdoors and meeting new people

  • Enjoy plants, planting or beautiful spaces



Campus Security Implementation Team

With the tireless work of our staff and volunteers, we successfully secured substantial funding through the California State Nonprofit Security Grant Program (CSNSGP)! Now comes the fun part– implementing and making updates so that the BTEE campus is more secure in a variety of ways.​

Questions: Contact Limor Zimskind


Join the implementation plan if you:

  • Have experience with physical space improvements

  • Are able to talk with contractors/service providers and evaluate proposals




Sunshine Committee

One of the most important aspects of being a synagogue is the multi-generational community we foster. With so many of us struggling, we need help now, more than ever in forging connections to each other, especially for those who need extra help. All of us can use a lending hand, a casserole, or words of encouragement at many points throughout our life.


The Sunshine Committee is responsible for collecting and tracking the needs of our community, determining the help needed, and making sure that no one feels alone.

Questions: Contact Ilene Dickman


Join us if you are interested in:

  • Developing a process to track the needs of our community

  • Making calls/visits/cards for those in need

  • Making new friends of all generations
