IMPORTANT: Each Avodah role is integral to the health of the whole system. The hours you contribute with Avodah serve as payment for the event. When you are absent or late for your shifts, or you do not arrive at the festival by the agreed upon time, your absence affects many others. Therefore, if you do not fulfill your agreed hours, we will ask you to pay the difference after the festival at the rate of $20 per hour.
CANCELLATION:If you accept your Avodah position and register for the festival, and then cancel after February 3, 2017, you will be required to pay the lowest adult registration fee ($40) and will not be allowed to participate in Avodah during future events until the fee is paid.
PLEASE NOTE: Avodah applications are now closed.
