TBI offers a number of volunteer opportunities. Check out the list below or visit our Committees Page to learn how you can become involved.

Shabbat Lunch

Saturdays After Services
TBI provides a light lunch following Shabbat morning when there are no B’nai Mitzvah. Following kiddush and motzi, everyone is invited to stay for lunch. However, you don’t need to attend services to join for lunch. If you would like to sponsor a lunch in celebration of an occasion, to honor someone, or in memory of a loved one, please send in a check or donate online and select “Shabbat Lunch Fund.” Sponsorships are a minimum of $100. If you’d like to volunteer to set-up or clean-up the lunch, please use the link below.

Host an Oneg

Following Erev Shabbat Services, Friday Nights
We rely on our members to periodically host an oneg following Erev Shabbat services. It’s a mitzvah and an excellent way to share the spirit of our community, greet friends, meet new friends, and enjoy delicious treats. We recognize that life is busy, so keep it simple. Cookies and fruit is all that’s needed! Celebrate a milestone, honor a family member or friend, remember a loved one. Co-host with a friend. Instructions and reminders provided. Questions? Contact Jody  in the office.

TBI Usher

Before Erev Shabbat Services on Friday, before Morning Shabbat Services on Saturday, and at special events
Be a friendly face at the front door and help make TBI a safe and comfortable place for our congregants and visitors. Contact the TBI office for more information.

Interfaith Response to Hunger

Fourth Sunday of the Month
Every Sunday groups from different faith communities serve a hot nutritious breakfast at First Christian Church (1166 Oak St, Eugene). This service is in partnership with Food for Lane County. TBI, along with First Congregational, serve about 300 plates of nutritious food to anyone who is hungry every 4th Sunday with a set-upon Saturday morning. We invite you to join our dedicated team of volunteers for this wonderful mitzvah. There’s a variety of jobs to choose from. For information, please contact Karen Giese.
