Volunteers are unpaid--not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.

As with most synagogues, there are numerous ways you can contribute your time to Beth El. What makes volunteering unique with us, however, is the experience you have with others. Our members are the most welcoming crowd in Pittsburgh. When you give your time to Beth El, you walk away feeling proud and satisfied, having made connections with people that could last a lifetime.

It can relieve stress and boredom and assist you in leading a more active and healthier lifestyle. At Beth El, we welcome any type of volunteer no matter the age, interest or experience and have numerous opportunities ranging from our fundraising events, Men’s Club and Sisterhood programming to reading Torah, setting up a Sukkah or simply helping in the office.

Our volunteers play a critical role in serving not just our membership but also our community. We value them and realize that if it weren’t for our volunteers, Beth El would not be able to offer 90 percent of our programs, services and events for our members and our community.
