Temple Chayai Shalom members are very active in our temple and extended communities. We pride ourselves on being a caring community that reaches out to one another during times of joy as well as times of need.
When a TCS member has surgery or is unable to go about daily life TCS Mitzvah Meals offers a helping hand. TCS members are automatically part of this committee and receive notification whenever TCS activates a Mitzvah Meals Meal Train.
Meals are organized through Meal Train, an online service that makes the logistics easy for all involved. For people in need of Mitzvah Meals we generally offer 1-3 meals per week. These vary in duration depending on the needs of the individual or family. Mitzvah Meals is generally limited to meals, but has offered rides or other support when needed.
If you are in need of assistance or know of a temple member who is in need, please reach out to Rabbi Carr.
When a TCS member experiences the death of an immediate family member our community reaches out to offer support. Our “Shiv’ah Meal” provides a sense of comfort during a time of loss. We typically deliver a meal on the Shabbat (Friday evening) following shiv’ah. Shiv’ah Meals are sponsored by TCS Sisterhood and Brotherhood.
Please note: Although we would like to offer this for all loss, we are only able to offer this for current members after the loss of immediate family members (child, spouse, sibling or parent).
