First New Program – Weekly Passion Sharing

What's your passion? What do you do to pass the time during isolation? Do you have any hobbies you can share with us to make our isolation go a little quicker? Do you have a hidden talent?

If you can answer any of these questions, we'd love to learn from you! Each week Rabbi Schapera will talk with a member of the NHS-CBA community about something interesting. Others will have a chance to ask questions and the video will be recorded so others can learn from you at their convenience.

Please email Rabbi Schapera at to participate!

Check out this week's interview with Sandy Spitz:

Second New Program – Virtual Shabbat

For Passover we sent out a virtual Pesach Seder hosted by YOU – members of the NHS-CBA community! We received such great feedback that we'd like to do something similar each week!

Each week, one member or family will record themselves reciting the three Kabbalat Shabbat prayers (Candle Lighting, Kiddush, HaMotzi). You can also throw in an interesting story, short drash on the Torah portion, prayer for the coming week, or a family friendly joke! You can record yourself or set up a time to meet via Zoom with Rabbi Schapera.

If you'd like to participate in our new Virtual Shabbat recordings, please email Rabbi Schapera at

Recordings must be in by Tuesday night of each week to allow for approval, editing, and uploading in time for Shabbat.

More Volunteer Oppportunities

Fill out this Form

As you know, Northern Hills Synagogue is a community that runs on volunteers. Even as our staff grows, our need for help continues to grow as well.

We would like to know what your volunteer interests are so we can contact you when an appropriate opportunity arises. In the form linked above, you can choose to volunteer in areas such as English readings during minyan, room set up before events, making phone calls, and so much more.

By filling out the form linked above, you are NOT committing to volunteer. Instead, your name will be added to a list of people to be contacted when there are volunteer opportunities around Northern Hills Synagogue. 

*Also note that many of these volunteer opportunities will also apply to our post-COVID programming*
