There are many volunteer opportunities through the Knoxville Jewish Alliance. You can work with your hands on beautifying our campus or roll up your sleeves and work on one of our many committees. You can make a personal connection by visiting a local senior citizen or you can be involved in growing food for those in need in our community garden.
Beautify our campus: Volunteer with Facilities
There are opportunities on occasional Sundays to work outdoors in a socially distant way by assisting in outdoor projects on our campus including trimming trees, building sandboxes, and other projects to beautify the campus.
