Good & Welfare…
ATTENTION: The Chesed [Loving-kindness] Committee is looking for volunteers to help with varied and numerous acts of loving-kindness when members of our congregation need some extra support. People can help by baking or cooking, making phone calls, dropping off meals, driving to medical appointments or the hospital, child-sitting, being a pall-bearer, saying prayers at the preparation of a body before the funeral or sitting with a body before the funeral, house-sitting during a funeral or cleaning house before the funeral or shiva minyan, being one of a minyan, etc. Perhaps you know what would have helped you during a time of crisis and will add to our list.
Please let us know.
-Training and support for our volunteers will be provided! If you want to add Hesed to your life this year , give a call or email Judith Huebner or Teresa at the Temple.
