Coordinating mutual aid and life cycle support

Chesed, Hebrew for "lovingkindness," connotes generosity of heart and an outpouring zeal for service and support.

Our spiritual ancestor Abraham is seen as the model of chesed in the way that he opened his tent on all sides for visitors, and ran out to greet and serve strangers even in his old and infirm state.


Our Chesed Committee leads this work in our community by organizing meal trains for congregants in need, sending notes to members in times of celebration and mourning, and thinking through how the synagogue can be a structure for mutual aid.

A congregant packs Purim goodie bags.
