Chesed Committee

 

Friends,

It is written that "repentance, prayer and charity cancel the stern decree."  We can help you check one of these off of your list before Yom Kippur arrives.

First: Please bring canned and non-perishable food items with you to Tribeca Synagogue on Kol Nidre evening, this Friday.  We will have a collection bin on the plaza, and your donations will help support Jewish families who are struggling to make ends meet.

Second: Following the devastation of Hurricane Maria, we are urging our members to help provide much-needed assistance to our Jewish brethren in Puerto Rico. Please visit the website for the JCC of Puerto Rico here http://www.jccpr.org to make your donation.

Thanks, as always, for your generosity and your kindness towards those who need it the most.  And may you be inscribed in the book of life for a new year of peace, joy and prosperity.

ABOUT CHESED @ TRIBECA SYNAGOGUE

 

Our synagogue's strength is our community and the connections that we make to one another.  Acts of kindness, chesed, given from one synagogue member to another and from the Tribeca Synagogue to the greater community, remind everyone of why we come together as Jews, as a congregation: in order to make the world a better place, one act of kindness at a time. 

The Tribeca Synagogue's Chesed Committee supports our members in times of need and during times of joy: whether someone from our community is observing shiva, celebrating the birth of a child, or recovering in a hospital, the synagogue, through its Chesed Committee, is there to provide a meal, a visit, or a helping hand. 

In addition, the Chesed Committee organizes community assistance projects for the greater Manhattan community with food drives for the hungry, clothing for the homeless, and other forms of support to those less fortunate.
 
The Chesed Committee recognizes chesed, tzedakah (charity), and mitzvot (good deeds), as inherent to Judaism. We are excited to be able to add these acts of institutional kindness to our synagogue's core mission. 
 
We need your participation in two ways: Let us know when you or a fellow synagogue member is experiencing a life-cycle event; and please contribute to the Chesed Fund, so that we may share the kindness with others in our community.  We are seeking donations of $18, or any multiple of $18, which can conveniently be made by clicking on the Chesed Fund Donation button at the top of this page or on the home page.
 
Thank you for your kind support.
