Chesed & Caring Committee

At Hill Havurah, we understand some of our greatest responsibilities as

Jews is the mitzvot of comforting the mourner, visiting the sick, and

rejoicing with new families. Our Chesed & Caring Committee aims to:

 

* Organize shiva minyanim – prayer services – for community​ members

who are mourning

 

* Organize meal delivery for community members who are  mourning,

sick, or new parents

 

* Organize bikkur cholim – hospital or home visits for community      

members who are mourning, sick, or new parents who would like the

company

 

If you could use the support of the Chesed/Caring Committee in any of

these ways, you can email Rabbi Hannah or call 202-427-6564.
 

If you’re a nurturer, a cook, and/or a person who likes to help, please let

our Committee chair, Sheldon Harris, know so that we can put you on our

list of folks to contact when community members need support.  He can

be reached at sjhwdc@gmail.com or 202-256-5321.
 

If you can lead a simple service or would like to learn how so as to assist

Rabbi Hannah in leading shiva minyanim, you can email Rabbi Hannah

or 202-427-6564.

    Hill Havurah and Reformation Community Building Event:
    Sunday, Aug 26th 11:30a to 1:30p
    Please join us on Sunday, 7/15/2018 at 11:30 am in the Parish Hall of Lutheran Church of the Reformation as leaders and members from Hill Havurah and Reformation get together to discuss our individual missions and our future as a connected community. As active congregations on Capitol Hill, Reformation and Hill Havurah share so much: our commitment to the community, our commitment to our members and the growth of our congregations, and even our worship and educational spaces! Please join us as we enter into a series of conversations focused on our faith partnership. Throughout this year, we plan to explore topics related to our congregations' use of shared space and community mission, interfaith relationships and growth, and overcoming the challenging history between Lutheranism and Judaism. Our first conversation (dedicated to community building, shared and differing missions, and our long term partnership between our congregations) will begin at 11:30am at Reformation on Sunday 7/15/2018. We would like to have a potluck lunch in addition to our conversation so if you would like to attend, please contact leah.wolfthal@hillhavurah.org to officially RSVP and sign up to bring a dish to contribute. Thank you all and we look forward to connecting with you.
