Chesed - Community Service

CHESED at B'nai Jeshurun

Join your friends, your community, and Chesed and sign up for a project or two! There are many projects planned for the year Please contact Rachel Schwarz to sign up and get involved! Our active Chesed committee seeks to make a difference in our synagogue and in our community. There are so many ways to get involved: cooking and delivering meals to congregants in need, packing food at the Cleveland Foodbank, lending a hand at the Animal Rescue Village, volunteering at Super Sunday with the Cleveland Federation, and so much more.  We hope you will join us to make a difference in our community.

To make a donation to the Joel Schwarz Memorial Chesed Fund in support of the synagogue's Chesed activities, you can give online or mail a check payable to B'nai Jeshurun Congregation (note Chesed in the memo line) to the synagogue.

Cooking & Meal Delivery

Did you know that CHESED prepares frozen meals that we deliver to our congregants when they need help; whether they are sick, taking care of family in the hospital or just going through a hard time?  B'nai Jeshurun is your family and we want to help.  We are looking for a few more volunteers who can be assigned one week during the year to deliver meals when needed.  For information about our delivery meal program or if you know someone who could use a nice cooked meal, contact Rachel Schwarz.
