One aspect of the High Holidays that is very important is the ability for our members and guests to reconnect with friends in the WJC community. Spending an hour at the door, in the hallway, or reminding people that it’s time to come to the Bimah for their honors, adds a critical ingredient that helps our services run smoothly. It also gives you the opportunity to greet fellow members whom you might otherwise miss in our big, busy building. And it’s a great way to break up the many hours that we spend together in prayer and reflection.
With over 2,000 worshipers in the building, many ushers are needed. The most important skill needed to be a greeter is to be welcoming! If congregants have questions about their Bimah honors, greeters direct them to the honors coordinators who are available at all times for assistance. Many stations require two ushers—why not sign up to work with a friend?
