Help needed for Friday Shabbat meal prep and delivery drivers

Back to top

Due to summer travel, we are losing some of our volunteer Shabbat meal preparers and drivers, and we need your help. Occasionally, when one of the full timers goes on vacation or is ill, we may need to call upon you to fill in. We have been preparing an average of ten to twelve meals weekly, which includes: entrée, salad, fruit, challah, and dessert. All meals are pre-purchased, so just some prep work is needed.

Meal prep begins at 11:30am and ends at 1:00pm. Driver delivery pickup begins at 12:45pm for local Venice area delivery (one Sarasota delivery) averaging a half hour. If you are willing to help prepare meals or drive, please contact: Judy Rapaport 315-591-1050 or See poster below.


Rabbi's Day Off and Office Hours
