These are the obligations without measure, whose reward, too, is without measure: To honor father and mother; to perform acts of love and kindness; to attend the house of study daily; to welcome the stranger; to visit the sick; to rejoice with bride and groom; to console the bereaved; to pray with sincerity; to make peace when there is strife. Gates of Prayer
The concept of a Caring Community Committee was conceived more than two decades ago. The Committee was created in response to the growing needs of older adults in the community, visiting congregants at home and in the hospital, sending meals to those recovering from an illness, and calling and visiting those who are homebound. Through the years as other needs were identified, new programs were continually added. Today, our members continue this fine work, but have expanded their efforts, to assists all congregants in need.
The role of caring belongs to everyone at CSBE. There is no greater way to perform mitzvot and to act on the Jewish values we have been taught than by reaching out to our own Central Synagogue family. Become a part of the Caring Community Committee and touch the hand and heart of someone in need. Please contact the Synagogue office at 516-766-4330, if you wish to become involved with this important committee.
