Our Mission

The mission of Chevrat Chesed is to provide short term assistance to members of our community who have suffered a loss, are ill, or are welcoming a new baby. Some of the services we provide include preparing meals, running errands, arranging rides and visiting with those of our members who are ill.  For those members who have suffered a bereavement and have the funeral locally, we provide fruit, cheese and vegetable platters for the meal after the funeral. We also will provide meals for the shiva week. For new families we supply much needed meals. The average term of this service is two weeks.  It is not in our mission to provide long term care.
