Mitzvah of Caring

Please participate in the mitzvah of Caring – our clergy want to connect with all our members who are in need. If you have a family member or know of someone who has suffered a loss, is ill, is in the hospital (privacy laws prevent hospitals from releasing any information about patients, even to clergy), or just needs some extra care, please call the Temple. Your phone call can make a big difference in someone’s life; it may be the only way we know if one of our members needs us. To be a holy community, we need to be a caring community.

The TBA Cares Committee supports members during times of joy, need, and sorrow with compassion, respect, and confidentiality. Some of the many ways “TBA Cares” are:

  • Providing meals 
  • Phone calls during an illness
  • Sending condolence notes
  • Delivering a “Shabbat kit” on the Friday before a child’s B’nai Mitzvah or on the first Shabbat celebrated by a new member
  • Sending baby gifts 
  • Providing mezuzah to newlyweds of members or members’ children (funded by the Ammerman Family Fund) 

TBA Cares always welcomes more members who want to help. Please email Shelly Gordon to learn how you can help – or to ask for help!
