Committees, Auxiliaries & Volunteer Programs

The artist draws an outline of a picture and then fills int he colors to bring a scene to life. That is the same vibrancy of that occurs when we our volunteers add their own unique color to the activities at B'nai Aviv. The outline for our success is clear, but only with volunteers does our picture fill with energy and become alive.
