CNT is a Kehillat Chesed... a Caring Community
We are the committee with a heart! Members participating in Chesed activities create an atmosphere of "a caring community" within our own Temple family. Visiting the sick, providing transportation to a member in need and phone calls of reassurance are just a few of the important mitzvot (good deeds) carried out by this special group of volunteers.
Some of the activities we do include:

Bikkur Cholim Society
Volunteers are trained to visit the ill and injured in the hospital or nursing home.
Volunteers place phone calls and send cards and notes of support to those who are ill, grieving, or in difficult times.
Volunteers attend funerals, make shiva calls, and provide emotional support for the grieving.
Are created and delivered by the Chesed Committee to those who are ill or returning home from the hospital.
Squares are created by congregants to be sewn into a healing quilt for use during Healing Services.
CNT is one of many local religious organizations, and the only Jewish congregation that participates. The congregation hosts a group of families for one week, four times a year, providing meals and overnight accomodations.
Rosh HaShanah Bags
Are created and delivered by the Chesed Committee to those congregants who are at home, hospitalized, or in residential facilities to bring cheer for Rosh HaShanah. We also send over 50 cards, and send L'Shanah Tovah wishes to college students.
Rabbi Hillel taught, "Do not separate yourself from the community; do not be certain of yourself until the day you die; do not judge another until you are in his position..." Pirke Avot
