Hesed

Our tradition teaches that כל ישראל ערבים זה לזה - the Jewish people are at some level, responsible for each other. At our best, BHA operates as a kinship group - a large, extended family that looks out for each other’s emotional, spiritual and pragmatic needs and as happens with all extended families, members of BHA occasionally reach out looking for a little help. It might be a ride to a doctor, or a lift to BHA for a service or other event.  It might be a delivery of groceries, emergency childcare, a hot meal to a member who is ill, or sometimes it’s help with a relatively minor household task that a member can't take care of on their own. 

Sometimes we find ourselves in the position where we are  in need of help, and other times we are in the position where we are able to offer help. Both are valuable! For when we allow ourselves to ask for assistance, we allow others to give of themselves, while also making it easier for them to feel comfortable asking for help should they find themselves in need.

For the past several years, our Hesed team of volunteers has been providing meals, rides, grocery delivery, comfort calls and more to fellow members of BHA in need of a little assistance. 

We invite you to let the Hesed Team know if you are in need of assistance and/ or available to help provide assistance when it is needed. 

Our Hesed Chair, Deborah Davidovits will receive any form submissions below and can also be reached at debd@beaconhebrewalliance.org.  The forms below are only accessible to BHA Members, and you must be logged into your BHA account in order to complete them.
