Hesed Initiatives for COVID-19 Outreach

 
CARING CONNECTION CHECK-IN CALL INITIATIVE
 
The Caring Connection is seeking volunteers to make phone calls to fellow members of our community in order to check in with everyone and help determine ways in which we can be of help. If you are able to make a few phone calls, please let us know by the filling out the signup form here. 
 
If you would like to request a check-in from a volunteer, please click here.
 
 
CARING CONNECTION GROCERY SHOPPING
 

In addition to phone calls, Caring Connection is also grocery shopping for those in our community who are unable to go out and shop for themselves. Some are able to reimburse Caring Connection, some are not, but we want to ensure that everyone who needs food is able to receive it, regardless of their financial status.

CORONAVIRUS RELIEF FUND
 

In anticipation of the economic fallout of this crisis and how it will affect some of our congregants, we have set up a CSI Coronavirus Relief Fund through the Rabbi's Discretionary Fund. To contribute to CSI's Coronavirus Relief Fund, please click here.  Online donations are greatly preferred at this time. However, if you do send a check, have it made out to: "Cong. Shearith Israel Rabbis Discretionary Fund" (in the memo, write: "Coronavirus").
 
 
 
VIRTUAL CLASS SPONSORSHIPS

 
We are offering sponsorship opportunities for several of our virtual classes.  All proceeds from sponsorships for our virtual classes and lectures will go toward the Coronavirus Relief Fund.

MAOT HITTIM


 
This year, while we are unable to host a Pre-Pesah Packathon as we did with Chamah in 5779, we will be donating a substantial amount of our Maot Hittim to Chamah. They will use these needed funds to purchase and deliver hearty, substantial Passover meals to families in need.
