Healing & Hesed (Loving Kindness)

עוֹלָם, חֶסֶד יִבָּנֶה

Olam Chesed Yibaneh / The world is built with Hesed (Psalms 89:3)

In carrying out their brand of Hesed, Or Ami’s Hesed Team performs a vital function in our community by helpin us each of us to feel truly known, cared about, supported and valued. They engage the rest o fthe Or Ami family to develop trusting, positive relationships in which we give and receive care, provide assistance and acknowledgment during the most difficult and sometimes even during the most wonderful moments in our lives. Examples of things lovingly managed by Hesed include

  • Bringing meals to people who are recovering from surgery
  • Delivering Jewish lullaby tapes, mezuzot, tiny candlesticks and yarmulkes to families with new babies
  • Making calls and visits to people in the months following bereavement
  • Offering members who cannot drive rides to synagogue programs
