Beth Chaim’s Chesed Program translates a philosophy of love and compassion to all, inside and outside our community, into a program of acts and deeds that help to support and lift each other up in times of need, and at life cycle events.

Every family in our congregation is a part of a smaller group - a Chesed group - of between 6 and 12 families. Members of these groups are there to help each other. A coordinator leads the group and is asked to notify other members if and when a need arises. In addition, families within each Chesed group may get together to celebrate holidays, sponsor a break-the-fast after Yom Kippur, or attend services together. The groups are celebratory in good times at social functions as well as supportive in times of need such as the passing of a parent or family member which may involve delivering a meal, writing a condolence note or helping at a Shiva.

Through our joint efforts of partnership with the Brotherhood, Sisterhood and Membership, our Chesed Program is yet another example of what makes our Congregation so inclusive and special.
