Caring Community

Our Caring Community

 

Caring Community “Deeds of loving kindness are equal in weight to all the commandments.”
Jerusalem Talmud

Our Caring Community's mission is to support our members during difficult times.

We offer help with:

• Rides to TAA services and events
• Rides to medical appointments
• Hospital or home visits
• Meals for those recovering from illness and their caregivers
• Grocery shopping
• Shiva Minyans

The support of our community for congregants who are hospitalized and ill at home makes a tremendous impact on those in need.

The Caring Community Committee requests that you check in with the Caring Coordinator of the month via email before buying or preparing food for any individual. There may be food restrictions due medical reasons, kashrut or personal preferences that we want to take into consideration before bringing food items.

If you need assistance or know someone who does, please call or email the monthly Caring Community Coordinators or Rabbi Lewis.

If you want to volunteer, please fill out the Volunteer Survey and/or talk to the monthly Caring Community Coordinators.

Looking for Volunteers

 

The Chesed Committee is always looking for volunteers to serve as Monthly Coordinators. To learn more and sign up, please contact Betty Slatko.

We need 2 people for each month to receive calls for assistance and then find volunteers who can provide help.
We have a very active and large group of people willing and able to meet member needs so all the Coordinators have to do is match up those who need help with those who have signed up to provide it.
Please contact Betty Slatko for information and scheduling.
