This interdenominational effort focuses on finding jobs for those in need, including helping clients to prepare resumes, develop interview skills and learn job prospecting methods and interview follow-up procedures. Started in 1992, during a period of higher unemployment, this program, at its peak, placed 50 people into jobs each year. Currently, even in this time of low unemployment, it continues to touch the lives of 15 people each year. Initially set up to help the impoverished, the program has also had an important effect on members of the congregations who are searching for a new job. Through this project, Temple Emanu-El has built strong relationships with its neighboring churches, Our Lady of Peace (Roman Catholic), St. James (Methodist) and St. Raymond's (Roman Catholic). In addition to helping people find jobs, the members of these congregations, through their volunteering together, have grown to know each other, share in each other's simchas, and respect one another.
