Temple Outreach – Call for Volunteers

The Berkeley Temple Outreach Committee provides assistance to Temple members who are suffering from an illness, injury, or hospitalization and need temporary help with meals, rides to the doctor, or who would like home visits.

Since Berkeley Temple serves a large geographic area, when someone needs help we rely on connecting with Temple members who live in the same area as those in need to provide Outreach services.

We are putting out a call for more volunteers wherever you live! If you are interested in serving in this capacity there is a sign-up form at the Information Desk, or e-mail Gail Jarocki at:

SRF Summer Youth Program

Girls’ week: June 25 – 29  |   Boys’ week: July 2 – 6

We invite all children and teens between the ages of 7 to 18 to the SRF Summer Day Program in Encinitas. This program ushers in a new era of training for youth in our Guru’s  How-to-Live  spiritual principles.

With guidance from SRF monastics, teens and children will have an opportunity to deepen their relationship with God, learn SRF techniques of meditation, engage in fun activities and create friendships with spiritually-minded peers. 

The program also features a “Parents Day” at the Encinitas Temple, that will include a class and satsanga given by the monastics on spiritual parenting.

Registration is available online at

For those from out-of-town, there are nearby state beach campgrounds and a list of nearby motels is also available on the SRF website. We recommend that you make your reservations as soon as possible because accommodations fill up quickly during the summer months.

For additional questions, please feel free to call our SRF Youth Services Dept. at 818-549-5160.

Scholarships are available for the Summer Day Program.
