Volunteer Opportunities at CBS
Coordinator: Rhonda Simon
An important group for the community as these CBS congregants serve hot meals on the fourth Monday of each month to the homeless of Napa at "The Table" housed at the First Presbyterian Church in Napa. CBS is one of many faith communities in Napa that participate in this wonderful mitzvah.
Bikkur Cholim, visiting the sick, is a mitzvah, a commandment, that brings us closer to God and each other. When CBS has members who are not well and in need of medical and spiritual attention, we use a website that we developed to make it easier for our caring community to stay in touch and take action for those in need.
Sign up on our website:
and when there is a need in our CBS community, you will be notified via email. The subject line of the emails will begin with "LHH" ("Lotsa Helping Hands") and will include a link that will take you directly to the CBS community website. You may decide how you want to respond in offering your help.
Sometimes there will be a calendar where you can sign up for a day. Or maybe it will just ask for you to call or drop a card to someone. You can also go on the website and alert others in the community of anyone that you know is in need or update the community about someone you just visited.
The more helping hands we have, the easier it is to provide care and comfort to our community!
The Road to Citizenship
Coordinator: Deb Bloomberg
This program begani in late 2012. Currently, the group is working with immigrants in Napa Valley who are here legally from other countries and hold Green Cards and wish to become citizens. The CBS volunteers help guide them through the process of becoming permanent citizens.
Join a Committee!
Our various committees perform many of the tasks required to sustain our community. We invite you to join us as we work together (and have lots of fun!) to contribute to the growth of our synagogue. Look through the committee descriptions on the Committees page to find a committee that suits your interests, skills, and abilities. Then, contact the committee chair to volunteer.
