Our community is at its strongest when we care for one another in times of need.

Hesed (loving kindness) comes in many forms: reaching out in times of loss or hardship, delivering a meal, running an errand, or extending a Shabbat invitation. Sometimes we need hesed, and sometimes we’re in the perfect position to offer it to another. Olam Hesed Yibaneh- Let’s build a world, and a community, of loving-kindness.
