Shomerim are community members who create sacred space for Shabbat and special events.
A shomer or shomeret (the singular of shomerim) is a trustee or steward; someone who “watches over” or “guards.” Shomerim play a unique, sacred and critical role—preparing themishkan/sanctuary for services.
Being a shomer or shomeret is about creating holy space for our community. We begin creating an atmosphere. It is beautiful, heartcentered work. It is also a wonderful way to meet people and to build community.
A large and active group of Shomerim allows for flexibility, back-up support, and alternates to carry out this crucial, holy work. There are opportunities to fit all schedules and interests.
Your community needs you.
