Hineni Volunteer Network

Hineni (hee-NEY-nee) means "Here I am" in Hebrew. It represents a willingness to step forward and serve. Our Hineni Volunteer Network is a pilot program designed to help you discover and take on impactful governance and advisory roles in the Greater Boston Jewish community.

CJP has always served as a community convener, and we’re excited to bring together organizations seeking expertise with volunteers willing to help. Our Hineni Volunteer Network can aid in streamlining the process of connecting you to a role best suited to your unique talents.

Your experience, expertise, and enthusiasm are needed


The Hineni Volunteer Network is designed to bring diverse voices to the table--we want you to be part of the coversation. While some roles may be available at CJP, the majority are with other nonprofit Jewish organizations.

You’ve got skills and strengths that could make a meaningful impact. We hope you’ll consider signing up, telling us about your talents and experience, and connecting to opportunities for personal, professional, and community-wide development.

Benefits of participating in CJP’s Hineni Volunteer Network include:

  • Connection with local Jewish organizations seeking volunteers to serve on boards and committees that match your experience and background
  • Opportunities to serve in volunteer roles on CJP committees, task forces, and advisory groups
  • Invitations to special events and opportunities
  • An active profile for one year, with the option to renew


Hineni might be right for you if:

  • You're interested in serving in governance and advisory roles within the Greater Boston Jewish community
  • You have experience or expertise in one or more of the following areas:
    • Fundraising and finance
    • Strengthening organizations and partnerships
    • Developing and connecting great people and great leaders
    • Data measurement and analysis
  • You’re prioritizing (or are ready to prioritize) your philanthropy in the Jewish community, including with CJP and our partner organizations


How it works:

Register by filling out the application form. You’ll provide your contact information, your volunteer interests, and your experience, skills, and bio. A volunteer leader at CJP will then set up a quick virtual welcome meeting to learn more about you and welcome you to the network. As our partners contact us looking for volunteer leaders to fill particular roles, we'll pass your information on when we see a possible match. Please note: personal contact information will be kept confidential until confirmed mutual interest from both the volunteer leader and the organization.
