We need Volunteers Before Implementation – go to Caring Community home page and complete form

 

Our Caring Community follows the ancient Jewish tradition of va‘ad bikkur holim (“committee to visit the sick”),  which demonstrates that Judaism is not just for paid professionals but that the community, as a community, takes care of its members.

Our volunteers send cards or notes to the sick congregant.  They ask if they can visit the patient at their home or nursing home. They also try to help by performing small tasks such as making the bed, watering plants, feeding their animals, doing the dishes, etc.

They can also offer to pray with the patient.  A simple wish of refu’ah sh’leimah (“complete healing) or “God be with you” can bring a level of comfort.

If you are interested in being part of this very important group of people please click here and complete the form on the Caring Community home page.
