Hevra Mishpacha

The Hevra Mischpacha, or Caring Community, serves as an extended family within the congregation who helps congregants during times of personal crisis. Hevra Mischpacha volunteers provide a range of support, from meals, rides, visits and phone calls, to helping people create confidential support networks for themselves or a friend (for example, identifying a congregant who has been through a similar experience and can provide a sympathetic ear).

Volunteers are needed for the Hevra Mishpacha. Please contact the office if you can make a meal drive a needing congregant to an appointment, or provide other support.

The opportunity for study, contemplation, and celebration at Beth El's bar mitzvah Torah class retreat enhanced the joy and meaning of the occasion and deepened our family's Jewish experience.
