Chesed at TBI

Members of Temple Beth Israel worship, celebrate, and learn together, but we also do more: we support one another in times of illness, injury, loss, isolation, and other life-challenging situations. Whether the occasion is one of joy or sorrow, the Chesed Committee can help make sure that no member of the congregation feels alone.

If you have a chesed need or are interested in joining the Chesed Committee, please contact Andrea, the Chesed Chair at

With direction from Rabbi David Finkelstein, the Chesed Chair will facilitate outreach activities by our membership to help or comfort those in need. These mitzvot can include:

  • Providing meals or soup for comfort
  • Doing errands or shopping
  • Making a friendly or shiva visit
  • Sending/delivering a plant or flowers
  • Writing notes of condolence, congratulations, or encouragement
  • Proviing rides to religious services
