Strengthening our support for one another, the Hesed Circle invites you to be an active volunteer in bikkur holim – visiting the sick, senior connect – honoring and supporting the most senior members of our community, and shiva support–comforting bereaved members.
Bikkur holim volunteers offer comfort to those who are ill or recovering from surgery. They may reach out with a phone call, make a friendly home visit, or drop off a care package. Volunteers also may help to coordinate meals or rides.
Senior connect volunteers help to facilitate multigenerational interactions including pre-holiday and Shabbat visits and set up rides to attend synagogue for services and other events.
Shiva support volunteers coordinate prayer book/shiva chair pickup and compile and maintain lists of people willing to respond on short notice to participate in shiva minyanim.
Help prevent and alleviate homelessness and hunger in our area.
The Fund for the Hungry and Homeless raises money to donate to local organizations and programs in Westchester County that feed, house, and support local residents. Twice a year, funds are distributed with the help of an advisory committee, which evaluates where contributions can be most effective.
Recently, donations were made to Baby Bank, the Bridge Fund of Westchester, CLUSTER Inc, Hunger Action Network, Kid’s Kloset, SHORE, and Westchester Jewish Community Services. Thank you to members of our community who made these donations possible.
