Hesed

On three things the world stands: on the Torah, on prayer and on acts of loving kindness.” -Pirkei Avot 1:2

The Hesed Community connects JJC members through acts of loving kindness. Thank you to all who support Hesed with your time and your donations to the Rabbi Dov and Alina Kentof Hesed Fund.

On a consistent basis, our hope is to expand through education and community events that reach a wide array of community members and unite us in this mitzvah of outreach to those in need. As such, Hesed is not a traditional committee at the Center. We aim to reach out to the entire congregation.

We invite you to join us! Please let us know how you would like to help in this fundamental social value and sacred tradition of Jewish life to strengthen our caring community.

  • Provide comfort and support for those homebound due to grief or illness
  • Prepare and deliver meals, make calls and send cards to provide support for our fellow congregants in times of need
  • Visit those who may be lonely or in the hospital
