II.  VOLUNTEER TO HELP OUT OR TAKE PART IN THE SERVICE

Rabbi Shimon the Righteous talks about the 3 “pillars” upon which the world rests: Torah, Avodah (Worship,) and Gimilut Hassadim (Acts of Lovingkindess).   Pirkei Avot 1:2

MCJC can always use your help. Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity to take an active part in our Jewish community, enriching the High Holy Days experience for yourself and others.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity believes that everyone should have a decent, safe, and affordable place to live. We build and repair houses all over the world using volunteer labor and donations.
To aid in this, the MCJC Social Action Committee is coordinating volunteer efforts with the local McHenry County Habitat for Humanity group. We volunteer on Wednesdays at the work site (locations change depending on build schedules).
No construction experience is required, only the desire to help. We are supervised by experienced personnel. All tools and safety equipment are supplied by Habitat. For a look at some of the projects we are currently involved in, please Click Here. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Howard Frank through our Social Action address, socialaction@mcjconline.org. Write “Howard” in the subject line.
