The function of the CHESED COMMITTEE (formerly known as SUNSHINE COMMITTEE) is to perform acts of loving kindness for Temple members who could use support in times of difficulty.  When a Temple Beth Am family is faced with the death of a family member we bring a “shiva meal” to the house.  If shiva is not being observed in the member’s house we have a tree planted in Israel in memory of the deceased.   Another role of the Chesed Committee is to cheer up a member who has had surgery or is just beset with a long-term illness.  Under those circumstances, we provide the ailing member with a get well gift or a meal.  If you hear of someone who could use our services, please let us know.  It is unusual for us to have more situations than we can handle but, on the rare occasion when that has happened, we have reached out successfully to the congregation for help. 

Committee chairs are Sandy Breitbart and Sylvia Epstein
