The group’s mission statement says it all: “The Caring Community of Congregation Sherith Israel acts as an extended spiritual family reaching out to our congregation in times of need and celebration.” Rhoda leads the task force for simchas (celebrations) to honor new parents and newlyweds; Lee coordinates the Chesed task force, to comfort those in time of grief and bereavement; while Janet coordinates Yad b’yad, literally “hand-to-hand,” to nurture members who are ill, injured, homebound or in need of emotional support.
