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.

The Caring Community wants YOU!

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

  • Would you like to call people to say hello?
  • Would you like to call people on the MiSheberach list?
  • Would you like to drive someone to Friday evening services or to the doctor?
  • Would you like to visit the sick in hospitals, or long term care facilities?
  • Would you be able to call and/or visit the recently bereaved?
  • Would you be able to prepare Shiva for a Temple member who does not have family or friends to do this mitzvah for them?
  • Would you like to take part in our Mitzvah Cooking Project?
  • Would you be able to deliver food to fellow congregants following the birth of a baby, illness, return from the hospital or after Shiva?
  • Would you be able to deliver Bimah flowers to a local nursing home?
  • Would you like to read to children in our Early Childhood Center?

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:
