Hesed: Caring for our Community
The goal of the Hesed committee is to extend life cycle support and services in times of need to members of our community. Whether a congregant is recovering from an illness or juggling the demands of a new baby our community wants to provide assistance when needed. At times, Hesed takes a large coordinated effort; at others just a few minutes of time. We encourage families and friends to notify the synagogue office or call a member of the Hesed Committee when you hear of a congregant that might need help.
Our on-line community of volunteers Lots of Helping Hands makes the mitzvah of Hesed easy. New volunteers are always welcome. When you sign-up with Lots of Helping Hands you will be notified of the needs within our community. Support listed on this site provides you with the opportunity to make a one time commitment. It might be dropping off a home cooked meal, picking up a few items at the grocery store or just making a friendly phone call.
Help us spread cheer, nourishment, helping hands or a friendly ear during a congregants’ time of need. Each of us as a community member can help uplift spirits as we reach out and build connections among members and families of our wonderful congregational families.
