“The Mitzvah Corps… provides many levels of support to congregants, including cards, home and hospital visits, childcare, transportation to medical visits, helping families pack and move, and offering a community of friends. This attention to our congregants’ needs defines us as a community. …Our current Mitzvah Corps chair does a remarkable job of organizing care, and we are all grateful for the support of our dedicated volunteers. However… we need more people to lend support so that responsibility falls less heavily on just a few volunteers.
The Mitzvah Corps’… Kehillat Chesed (Caring Community) model includes small groups of people who can take on one specific project that would require periodic focus; i.e., a visit once or twice a month for several months to the same person… Thank you all so much for your continued dedication to our sacred community.”
