Much of what you have read about through the pages of this e-magazine couldn’t have happened without the band of dedicated volunteers who ensure that every event, class, guest speaker or chag goes ahead seamlessly. As you would expect, there is a lot of work that goes on in the background to ensure success. Our volunteers have stepped up even more during the Covid-19 crisis, making sure that everyone in the community has received at least one phone call to see how they’re doing, making sure they don’t need anything, be it a meal or a call from Rabbi Gabi. It’s a task that everyone threw themselves into to make sure our ARK community is as ok as it could be in our current times.

There are a range of volunteering groups at ARK Centre. Those who help devise, plan and execute events, those who provide security and those who deliver pastoral care services.

The need for security at a Jewish Community Centre like ours is unquestionable, and we are always looking for additional people

to volunteer their time for this vital work. Our security team, led by Theo Axarlis, are all trained by CSG. If you are interested in becoming a part of our Volunteer security team, please get in touch with the office.

Our pastoral care team ensures that anybody who needs some assistance receives it.

Everyone involved in pastoral care tells us that their visits are very rewarding, and they feel they are really making a difference.
