We are a welcoming community of committed individuals. One of the ways that we express the central Jewish value of community is by caring for our members. We're ready to reach out to those in need through visits from congregants and clergy, follow-up phone calls, coordinating transportation to doctor’s visits, providing a hot meal, birthday and anniversary cards, baby gifts, and more.
We rely on our community to let us know how we can best care for our members. Please contact Rabbi Reeves if you or someone in our synagogue family requires our assistance.
The Caring Committee's first priority is to help congregants who are ill or need support. If we hear that someone might appreciate our services, we call and ask how we can help. Our assistance includes cooking and delivering meals, preparing care packages, visiting, phoning, transporting, and even grocery shopping for the housebound. We also offer shiva assistance, such as preparing food and providing setup. We have a group of caring community memberse who do not necessarily join us for meetings but are willing to help us by baking, cooking, and delivering during the year. Another important commitment is to let congregants know that we care about them during happy occasions. It is a pleasure to celebrate simchas such as anniversaries, birthdays, births, and weddings. We bake and deliver cakes and/or flowers to couples who have been married at least 35 years and thereafter at five year intervals, send cards for special birthdays, and give small gifts for births and weddings.
