Can you lend a hand? Do you need a hand?

Hesed Committee

Congregation Neveh Shalom cares about each and every one of our members. When a family in our kehillah is in need of a helping hand, we are prepared to offer assistance.


If you, or someone you know, is experiencing a medical situation or other family emergencies, the Hesed Committee can help with:

  • Meal delivery
  • Meal trains
  • Grocery shopping
  • Errands
  • Transportation to non-emergency medical appointments

To request Hesed support for yourself or a loved one, please contact:
