Caring Committee

The Caring Community of Congregation Shir Hadash recognizes our responsibility to care for one another as we fulfill the mitzvot of G’milut Hasasdim — acts of loving kindness. These acts build and nourish a network of relationships which can sustain us throughout the journey of our lives.

The Caring Committee assists members by offering:

  • Friendly phone calls
  • Caring cards or notes
  • Visits at home or in the hospital
  • Mitzvah meals for the ill or bereaved
  • Transportation to Shir Hadash events

The Caring Committee offers guidance and support to members of Shir Hadash through:

  • Special Shabbat services
  • Educational programs and workshops
  • Ongoing support groups
  • Helpful publications available through the Shir Hadash library


If you want to become involved as a volunteer, or know someone who needs our help, please contact us:

  • By phone: 408–358–1751 ext. 118 (Caring Committee confidential phone line)
