As a Jewish community, we recognize our commitment to care for each other as we fulfill the mitzvot of G’milut Hasasdim — acts of loving-kindness. These acts shape and sustain a network of relationships which can aid us during the course of our lives.

- Financial assistance to community members
- Phone calls
- Caring cards
- Visits at home or in the hospital
- Mitzvah meals for the ill or bereaved
- Transportation to TBI events
- Transportation to doctor’s appointments
Please notify the Rabbi or call the office if you know of an individual who is in the hospital or in need of assistance.
