Minyan jobs revealed

Weekly jobs are assigned to all members in rotation on our three-month schedule. Most weekly jobs are assigned to several members. 

  • When families are assigned jobs, only one adult is expected (however many adults there are in the household).
  • If you expect to be away or are otherwise unable to do your assigned job, you must find a substitute to perform your assignment and tell the noodge listed on the calendar.
  • It's perfectly acceptable to call people you don't know as well as those you do (read about how to swap jobs).
  • You may ask for an exemption or help with jobs in certain circumstances.

Missed Jobs Policy

When a member does not perform an assigned job for any reason (without arranging for a swap and notifying the noodge), the member must make up the job within a reasonable period of time. (In the event that a member arranges for a swap and notifies the noodge, responsibility for performance of the job switches to the substitute.)


  • As soon as you become aware that you missed a job, be in touch ASAP with the Jobs Supervisor regarding plans to make it up.
  • If you become aware that someone missed a job, please let the Jobs Supervisor know.
  • Any job missings, and loop-closings should be communicated to the Jobs Supervisor.

Ways to make up a job:

  • If another member filled in to do the missed job, the job-misser contacts the member who did the job and offers to take a future job for them (effectively swapping jobs).
  • If no one filled in, the job-misser can fill in when a make-up opportunity arises, such as shiva, illness, or another emergency that precludes someone from being able to complete their job.
  • A member may make up a missed job by volunteering on the spot when the Moderator asks for volunteers to do a job.


  • The Jobs Supervisor will inform members who have missed jobs when make-up opportunities arise.
  • If a member fulfills their obligation in the above ways, it is the member's responsibility to notify the Jobs Supervisor. The Jobs Supervisor will maintain a list of members who owe jobs.
  • In addition, each January the Jobs Supervisor informs all families who are on the list of those owing jobs of that status to remind them.
