As a congregation committed to the wellbeing of all of our members and to our general community, we are proud to offer support through our Hesed network, Caring Connection. Caring Connection ensures that our members in need- whether dealing with an illness or injury, a long-term or permanent disability, the challenges of coming home with a newborn or a bereavement- are remembered and supported. Our caring Caring Connection volunteers deliver meals, make home or hospital/facility visits, check-in by phone and more.

 

Caring Connection raises the funds needed to defray the costs of all it does. To make a donation to Caring Connection, click here. Not only does this vital assistance greatly aid the individual, it also strengthens and unifies our community and enhances our sense of responsibility for one another.

 

Caring Connection also educates and trains community members to become sensitive volunteers and to proactively help others through times of need, one of Judaism’s greatest Mitzvot. If you would like to learn more or get involved, please contact Rabbi Richard Hidary at rhidary@shearithisrael.org or 212-873-0300 x239.

 

If you know someone who might need assistance, in any form, please refer them to Rabbi Richard Hidary, the coordinator of Caring Connection. Rabbi Hidary will sensitively and discreetly coordinate with our volunteer team. He can be reached at rhidary@shearithisrael.org or 212-873-0300 x239.
