Today is September 21st, 2017 -
Members of Temple Sinai worship, celebrate, and learn together, but we also do more – we support one another at times of illness, injury, loss, isolation and other life challenging situations. With an active group of more than sixty volunteers who stand ready to help when it is needed, the Caring Committee coordinates outreach efforts to help or comfort those with need. Some of our activities include providing meals of comfort, doing errands or shopping, making a friendly or shiva visit, sending/delivering a plant or flowers, writing notes of condolence, congratulations or encouragement, and providing rides to religious services. The Caring Committee also provides general educational and spiritual support through the distribution of prayer cards and pamphlets, a bi-monthly Healing Service, guest speakers, meetings and an annual Shabbat Service to honor its members and friends.
Each month, on a rotating basis, two individuals coordinate the activities of the committee. They work together with the Rabbi and the Chair to make sure that no member of the congregation feels alone. This model provides the opportunity for many people to share leadership roles in a given year, while ensuring that everyone who wants to contribute can do so without feeling overwhelmed.
We are always looking for new ideas to expand our work. Please contact the Temple for more information or to volunteer. You’ll be glad you did!
