KINCARING

Sign up to be a KINCaring volunteer or donate to support this amazing group here!

In the Talmud the sage Hillel teaches us “do not separate yourself from the community”. Caring for others and giving expression to the mitzvah of hesed (loving-kindness) is one of the highest forms of mitzvah in all of Jewish tradition. We are grateful that you are willing to give of yourself to bring comfort and caring to those in our community who are most in need of a loving touch or a caring voice.

Ki’s KINCaring program is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community in a meaningful way. Through our KINCaring volunteers we bring the values of KI into the lives of those who are most in need of community support in a variety of ways.

The KINCaring program offers various opportunities for touching the lives of others. We currently need volunteers of all ages, whether you are 15 or 115, who can help us reach out to our KI family. Volunteers are needed to:

  • Provide transportation assistance to services and synagogue activities
  • Coordinate meals for congregants in mourning or during illnesses
  • Visit KI congregants who are in the hospital
  • Phone congregants who are hospitalized, ill at home, or home-bound
  • Write condolence, get-well, and simha notes
  • Prepare and deliver Condolence Bags for KI members in need
  • Prepare and deliver New Member Baskets
  • Knit or crochet squares for healing blankets for those who are sick or in need of healing
  • Become a KI Walking Buddy (as an individual or as a family)
  • Make home visits to the bereaved and those in need of friendly visitors
  • Assist a KI senior with new technology (ex. Sending email, using smart phones or tablets)

 

On a need basis, our KINCaring advisors and the KI Social Worker, Jessica Simon, provide our volunteers with one-on-one training, guidance and support.

Thank you for being a KI Mitzvah Mensch and for participating as a KINCaring volunteer!
