TO CONTACT THE CARING COMMUNITY TEAM,  please call Ann Greenstein at 424-524-3938 or e-mail her at

The caring community team is available to help members who need assistance with meals and rides and issues associated with illness and bereavement.  Or, if you just need to hear a friendly voice during this time of isolation, we have a group of volunteers ready to make contact with you.
Caring Matters, and at Brith Achim, we are here for one another.

It is sometimes difficult to remember during hard times that there are so many wonderful things happening too, such as births, birthdays, wedding anniversaries, bar and bat mitzvahs, and special achievements,  There are so many reasons to rejoice even when life is difficult or disappointing.  The Caring Community Team is getting ready to focus more on these joyful events, but we need your help. 
We are looking forward to starting a column in the monthly bulletin called mentsch-ening (We can give Rabbi Lazar credit for this idea) and we need your help.  We do not always know when a happy event has happened to you or your family so we ask that you tell us when there is a birth in your family, a wedding, a move to a new home, an honor or award, or anything else special to you.  You can contact Ann at 484-524-3939 (leave message) or at so we can share your joy in the column “Mentsch-ening”. 
Once we expand the Caring Community responsibilities, we will need volunteers to send out birthday cards monthly, and to place calls of congratulations or acknowledgment in other ways.  So, keep in mind what you would like to do to let our members no that we care as much when things are going well as when we need to provide support.
