Chesed Committee Activities

                                                                                                  As members of Ohr Kodesh, we seek to support each other as we meet life's many challenges. 

Whether a few minutes of conversation or a large coordinated effort, we hope to lift spirits, alleviate isolation and reinforce connections among the OKC family. Our committee works with individual members, synagogue committees and the synagogue staff to identify needs and organize responses.

  • Meals
  • Transportation
  • Visits
  • Calls
  • Personal Notes
  • Greeting Cards for Ill Children
  • Prescription Deliveries
  • Doctor Appointments

We also have an online community of volunteers: The OK Chesed Committee’s Lotsa Helping Hands (LHH). The LHH site makes the mitzvah of chesed easy! New volunteers are always welcome. These activities require only one-time commitments, such as buying some groceries for a home-bound family when you are already planning a trip to the store, or doubling your dinner to provide a meal for a fellow congregant. If you have time to throw some extra pasta on the stove, or would like to purchase a meal for a family, but can’t quite find the time to drop it off yourself, the Chesed Committee can help arrange logistics.
