Community of Caring

“Walk in the ways of God.  As God visits and brings comfort to those who are ill, so must I emulate God by visiting and bringing comfort to those who are sick.”  (Babylonian Talmud, Sotah 14a)

Temple Aliyah’s Community of Caring is committed to offering support and caring to our congregants and their loved ones.   The Community of Caring Committee meets regularly to create and maintain volunteer teams which reach out  to those in the Aliyah family who are in need of support and to those celebrating happy occasions as well.  There are many ways to get involved:

  • Note-writing
  • Chores/Help in Home
  • Delivering Thinking of You bags
  • Rides
  • Preparing/Delivering meals
  • Visiting
  • Hosting a Shabbat/Holiday meal

For those interested in a more on-going way to help:

  • Become a bereavement supporter
  • Be matched up with someone who is sick or living alone and wanting companionship
  • Join the Community of Caring Committee
