Chesed Committee

 “The idea is to act like an extended spiritual family, reaching out to and coordinating support for members in both times of need and celebration,” explains Janet Parker. The core group includes Kathryn Amenta, Ardis Breslauer, Mimi Gauss, Helen Luey, Ron Laupheimer, Janet Parker, Shira Shore and Helaine Weinstein. 

“We hope to engage the entire congregation in giving and receiving support,” adds Janet. Core committee members will rotate monthly as the “point person,” coordinating assistance as requests come in. The point person will reach out to the community to provide the requested help, which might be rides to Shabbat services, shopping when someone is ill or bringing dinner to a family with a new baby. Rabbi Julie believes that our congregation is full of people who will show up to help each other. “The key to becoming a community where care flows naturally and joyfully is a belief that your simchas and needs are my joys and challenges,” she says.
