Volunteer at the Purim Carnival

You are invited to volunteer at the carnival by running the games, taking tickets at the entrance, and managing the prize room. It is a fun day and an amazing way to give back to your community, make a child’s day, and earn service hours. Once you register, Rabbi Heaps will contact you about the different volunteer opportunities at the Carnival.

The volunteers are 5th-12th graders. 5th and 6th graders are junior volunteers, which means they will work half of the carnival and be partnered with an older volunteer at their station.

Register here to volunteer! For questions, please contact Rabbi Rachel Heaps at rabbiheaps@templejeremiah.org or at 847.441.5760 ext.109.
