Teen Leadership Training Program: Are you in high school and interested in developing your leadership skills? Applications are now open for next year's KMS Teen Board. We are looking for boys and girls in grades 9-12 who can serve as grade representatives and who play leadership roles in all aspects of KMS youth programming. In addition, we are looking for teens to coordinate the Friday night and Shabbat morning rotation of speakers at youth minyan, and to plan themes and arrange the weekly youth minyan kiddush. As part of the Teen Leadership board, you will also receive training on things like strategic planning, fundraising, marketing, and public speaking. Please email Rabbi Levitt if you are interested.

Please Volunteer with KMS

KMS is improving the process by which volunteer resources are matched up to the צרכי ציבור--the needs of the community. The first step in our process improvement is to launch our new Volunteer Corps. Please fill out this survey and identify when/where/how you might be able to volunteer your help for our community.

As our membership grows, KMS will be implementing more programs of all types – social, educational, youth, and chesed – which will require the expansion of our volunteer pool and the optimization of how we use the time of our volunteers.

Contact Shuli Tropp or Sharon Freundel at VolunteerCorps@kmsynagogue.org with any questions.

Monday Morning Coffee

Looking for a great cup of coffee and some friendly company? Join us after minyan on Monday mornings for coffee in the KMS lobby.
