Caring Community

Caring Community

Everyone needs support at some point in their life, and everyone has some way to offer support. We ask all Temple members to participate in our Caring Community using the skills and interests they have. Involvement is tailored to your available time, whether you are have only a short amount of time or whether you are looking to offer help on an ongoing basis.

Our Work

Currently we work to visit those who are ill, in the hospital, rehabilitation and skilled nursing facilities. We send cards in celebration or in sorrow. We would like to expand to be able to offer supportive phone calls to those who are home bound due to illness or disability. To help those who are recently bereaved we would like to be able to help lead or participate in a shiva minyan, or need assistance with meals of condolence.

The Caring Community Steering Committee is chaired by Dr. Ira Moskowitz, who has long been a driving force within the committee. The Steering Committee helps to coordinate services and referrals to individuals and families in need. To contact us for information, to offer or request help, or for any other questions, please email caringcomm@teesd.org or call Ira Moskowitz at (619) 449-2762.
