Volunteer

Hillel asked: “If I am only for myself, what am I?” and the Talmud teaches us that “we are all responsible for one another.” With these teachings in mind, the SJCC is looking to offer meaningful opportunities to embody the value of tikkun olam (repairing the world). We welcome your participation and any questions that come along with it. Our goal is to provide a quality experience while establishing connections and benefiting the community.

If you have questions, contact Arts + Ideas Outreach and Special Events Coordinator Dana Pruchno or call 206-829-2592.

Arts+Ideas | Seattle Jewish Film Festival

Volunteers are essential to the success of the J’s wide range of performing arts and entertainment events. When you volunteer for year-round films, chef and author talks, concerts, and theater shows, our annual SeaJAM Festival, or Seattle Jewish Film Festival, your generous time and dedication is rewarded by seeing the show or receiving tickets to another. At the film festival, benefits correspond to the number of hours volunteered.

If you have any questions, contact Arts + Ideas Outreach and Special Events Coordinator Dana Pruchno or call 206-829-2592.

Dinner at Our House

New dates coming soon! Whisk, simmer, flip, bake, and blend as we cook a Sunday dinner in the SJCC kitchen for homeless teens—a great family activity to make a difference for homeless teens. Dinners are delivered to YouthCare, a Seattle organization working to get homeless teens off the streets and prepared for life.


SixThirTeens

The SixThirTeens is a self-directed, mitzvah-based philanthropic group for teens in the Seattle area. The primary purpose is to engage in various social action initiatives, benefiting the community while providing an evocative platform to connect with one another. The name “SixThirTeens” is derived from the number of mitzvot (commandments) recognized in the Torah.

The overall goal is to provide low-barrier opportunities for teens to engage in service and develop a foundation of key values with each other, on their own terms. The group was created by teens, for teens, and is self-directed. We have no membership or attendance requirements. Serve one time, or every time!

If you, your teen, or a teen you know is interested in participating or has questions, please email Program Manager Jessica Ost or call 206-388-1987.
