Caring Community

The philosophy of the Caring Community is to engage all the members of the Temple Am Echad community. We offer opportunities for each of us to make an impact in the lives of the most vulnerable among us, and to nurture and preserve the values of a diverse and vibrant Jewish community.

Help us perform mitzvot: acts of love and kindness, hospitality to strangers, visiting the sick and consoling the bereaved.  Together, we:

  • Call people to say hello
  • Reach out to people on the Mi Sheberach list
  • Drive members to Friday evening services or to the doctor
  • Visit the sick in hospitals or long-term care facilities
  • Call and/or visit the recently bereaved
  • Prepare Shiva for a Temple member who does not have family or friends to do this mitzvah for them
  • Plan semi-annual Mitzvah Cooking/Baking Project
  • Deliver food to fellow congregants following the birth of a baby, illness, return from the hospital or after Shiva
  • Deliver Bimah flowers to a local nursing home

It takes all of us to make Temple Am Echad a caring and supportive community! A small amount of your time will help others in our Temple community. If you would like to explore the variety of ways you can help, please contact Ellen Tolle.
