Chesed - Caring Community



An essential part of our temple family is the Chesed group. This group reaches out to members of the Har Zion family in a variety of ways. We send out wishes of congratulations for those celebrating special birthdays (multiples of five), messages of condolence to those who have suffered losses in their lives, and get well messages to those who are ill or have been hospitalized. In addition, we visit people at home or in hospital (during non-Covid times), provide meals when needed for those who are convalescing, and reach out by phone to those who are in need.

Often, ideas for programs are suggested by temple members. We have organized bereavement groups, meditation groups, healing circles, programs on pain management and educational community awareness sessions on the importance of organ donation.

We have put together a list of resources to help members of our temple family and the community at-large should they find themselves in a difficult position.  This list will be updated and added to on a regular basis.
