Facilities Caretaker Needed.  Our sanctuary and grounds are a blessing.  However, keeping up with coordinating maintenance, cleaning, and repairs is more than the Consistory Team can handle.  We are in need of a dedicated person to coordinate the efforts.  Contact a Consistory Team member if you’re interested.
