The Shabbat usher is at the doorway of the service and directs congregants to specific seats if they are part of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah group, if they know they will have an Aliyah or need to find the restroom during the service. They also step forward to deal with
any assistance a member or guest may need such as a medical emergency, a mobility issue, a request for a large print Siddur, or a hearing-expanding device. The usher is on duty with a smile and Shabbat Shalom till the end of the service. He/ she may choose to close doors while the Rabbi speaking if the lobby becomes too noisy.

Everyone who walks through our doors on Shabbat and Holidays is greeted with a warm welcome. This is made possible by our devoted members who are part of our greeter team. Being a greeter is an easy and fun way to connect with other congregants, meet new people and become an integral part of the synagogue. If you can smile and say “Shabbat Shalom” then you are a fully trained greeter. Greeters stay in the foyer in front of Ellman Chapel for approximately one hour on Shabbat and Holidays and take one-hour shifts on the High Holidays.
To join the greeter team contact Mildred or Marty Kwatinetz at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404.812.1734.
