The Caring Community Program

Our Spiritual Communal Family Helping One Another

Learn more about the Caring Community Program

This program is a way for us to live our Jewish values by caring for one another, helping each other in concrete ways, and becoming a spiritual, communal family.

Performing mitzvot are part of daily Jewish life. In the daily morning prayers, a passage from the Talmud (Shabbat 127a) enjoins us to honor our parents, do deeds of loving kindness, provide hospitality, visit the sick, and comfort the bereaved.

Everyone can participate

Everyone’s life has different demands and whatever one can do is greatly appreciated and valued.

No mitzvah is too small!
