Service Challenge long

The UMJC has created a Service Challenge for youth and twenties/young adult groups to begin thinking about the summer 2013’s conference theme–Avodah: Service in our hearts and hands in Messiah Yeshua. The service challenge is for each group to take on a service project in their synagogue and/or in the community. Below are some examples of what you can do:

Service Ideas for Congregations:
– Teach Jr. Congregation
– Host an Oneg
– Youth host a kid’s event
– 20’s host a youth event
– Babysit for a Parent’s Night Out
– Plant flowers/help with landscape
– Clean the fellowship hall
– Collect toys and books for nursery
Service Ideas for Community
– Volunteer at the JCC
– Soup Kitchen
– Collect items: coats, canned goods, school supplies, etc.
– Volunteer at a 5K
– Art auction to raise funds for an organization
– Host a hot chocolate/soup night for homeless people in your city
– Plan a community event

The UMJC youth and twenties committees will be creating a PowerPoint of all of the different images and projects leading up to the conference. Please send pictures and quotes from those who are participating to either: or We want to know what you did and how it impacted its participants!

    Dear UMJC,
    I am a 23 year old Scottish Jew, a music performance major at Fort Lewis College. I teach violin, am the lead singer and SHMBE dance leader for our synagogue and recite the blessings at our synagogue, along with teaching beginning Hebrew to the young children preping for the Bat/Bar Mitzvah programs. I went to Mexico City with Rabbi Bernis of Jewish Voice with my 21 year old sister and 17 year old brother. We live in a rural ranching community and I need, we need, other young Messianic Jewish kids. Can you help? Should I come to the summer conference? Thank you for your understanding,
