The Caring Community

“If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?” – Hillel

Our Mission is to build connections among congregants by providing comfort and practical help to temple families in times of need or stress, joy or sorrow. As a congregant, you are already a member of The Caring Community, whether you are participating as a volunteer or as a recipient.

Our first initiative is to provide a “comfort” meal for our temple families who have welcomed a new baby into their lives, congregants who have been discharged from the hospital or who have experienced a loss in their immediate family. This meal will be prepared and delivered by individual congregants and we hope you will sign up to be “on call” at least 2 months in a year. By letting us know your availability, we can call if a need arises. Once you sign up, we will provide you with all of the information you will need to fulfill this important mitzvah.

Not a cook? Not a problem. A purchased meal will be just as welcome. This is meant to be meaningful for both the providers and the recipients, not a burden.

Contact Temple Administrator Abbie Levitt for more information about getting involved in this important service to our community.
