Volunteer


Welcome! Let’s figure out how you can make the Greater Boston Jewish community even stronger.

Our community is at its best when we activate the talent, experience, and passions of all our members. Tell us how you want to get involved in building Jewish life, caring for our most vulnerable, and promoting human dignity.

Maybe you’re here because you’re looking to share your expertise with others. Or you’re searching for a new way to give back. We’ll help you find your volunteer fit and meet like-minded people who are working to make the world a better place.

What are you passionate about?

We want to make sure that you’re both helping the Jewish community where it most needs support and finding a fulfilling way to share your talents and spend your time.

Serve on committees, task forces, and as thought partners to advise and offer insights on key organizational initiatives. Be an ambassador for CJP through peer-to-peer fundraising and relationship-building, and connect people to CJP’s mission and community.

A special message about volunteering and the coronavirus crisis


Especially during uncertain times, CJP is focused on the health and well-being of our entire community. Many of our community's regular and ongoing volunteer opportunities have been suspended or modified because of COVID-19. However, our community has also responded with creativity to meet the needs of the moment, sustaining our collective commitment to help the most vulnerable, through both in-person and virtual volunteering.
