Caring Community Program - New Program Areas!

Our Spiritual Communal Family Helping One Another
Learn more about the Caring Community Program  

This program is a way for us to live our Jewish values by caring for one another, helping each other in concrete ways, and becoming a spiritual communal family.Everyone can particpate. Performing mitzvot are part of daily Jewish life. In the daily morning prayers, a passage from the Gemara (Shabbat 127a) enjoins us to honor our parents, do deeds of loving kindness, provide hospitality, visit the sick, and comfort the bereaved. Everyone’s life has different demands and whatever one can do is greatly appreciated and valued. No mitzvah is too small!

 

Be The Game Changer - Volunteers needed for Snack Delivery

YOU can be the game changer! Volunteer to pick-up and deliver snacks once a month to the youths involved with Michigan Youth Opportunity Initiative (MYOI - youths transitioning from foster care to independent living).  Shaarey Zedek's Tzedakah Committee helps sponsor a monthly asset training by providing snacks and drinks.  We know our efforts can help at least ONE of these youths successfully transition out of foster care and we need your help.  

The Tzedakah Committee can provide the snacks for you - pick up at Congregation Shaarey Zedek- or you can be reimbursed by providing receipts to Patty.  Contact Jan White to schedule your snack delivery!
