Caring Committee

The Caring Committee - Supporting Our Members

The job of the Caring Committee is to coordinate assistance to members and their families when there is an illness, injury, hospitalization or passing of a loved one. Assistance can be in many forms, such as a meal train (prepared meals delivered to your home), transportation to appointments, grocery shopping and other errands, even help with laundry.

Our Committee Coordinator Leah Katz will first speak directly to the family to determine what the specific needs are, then contact a pool of volunteers through e-mail and phone. Our coordinator acts as a “case manager” for the family, maintaining a schedule of volunteers and staying in touch with the families for as long as they may need help.

If you are experiencing an illness or injury or facing a hospitalization you can contact the committee directly by e-mailing Leah Katz (lckatz@comcast.net) to see how we can help ease this time. Barbara Checknoff (barbarachecknoff@aol.com) coordinates our meal trains. You can also ask a member of the Temple's professional staff to pass your name along.

If you would like to volunteer to do this very important work, please reach out to Leah.
