Volunteering at DN

Darkhei Noam Volunteer Opportunities
Darkhei Noam is a lay-led community where everything is made possible by volunteers. In and out of shul there are many opportunities to get involved. We are eager to have you as an active member of our community. Please let us know what programming you'd like to support.
Participate in Lay-Led Weekly Services
As a lay-led community, Darkhei Noam’s weekly services are led and coordinated by volunteers. There is no need for prior experience to participate in weekly services. Our coordinators can connect community members to teachers and resources to learn how to lead any portion of the service, including davening, leining, acting as a gabbai, and giving a D'var Torah.
