Tikkun Olam Team (formerly Caring Community)

The Tikkun Olam Team has no regular meetings, no paperwork to fill out, and no spreadsheets to agonize over, and you can participate a lot or a little. Team members will simply be asked from time-to-time to help those of us in our community who are faced with the sort of difficulties we all need a hand with at some time in our lives.

Tikkun Olam Team members will... a friendly face and a listening ear for someone who is convalescing at home or the hospital.
...prepare and deliver a meal for those in mourning or who are ill.
...go shopping, pick-up a prescription, or drive someone for a doctor's appointment. with the arrangements for a shiva.
...walk a dog or feed a cat, do a sink of dishes, help with the garden, or just sit with someone and read out loud.

Sometimes someone just sitting with us offering loving kindness, or helping us finish a chore that is simple but today feels overwhelming, can make all the difference. Join B'nai Israel's Tikkun Olam Team today.

For thousands of years Jews have practiced a beautiful tradition of assisting in the journey from death to burial with respect, kindness and sympathy.

Are you interested in learning more for you or a loved one? Come listen  and learn about this rich practice, where respect for the deceased is the guiding principle. This evening is open to all- from those who are curious to those that want to learn so they can participate in this beautiful mitzvah.
