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.

    Neighbors Together in Faith and Justice
    Wednesday, Oct 28th 7:00p to 8:30p
    Mount Moriah Baptist Church, Hill Havurah, and the Lutheran Church of the Reformation will be coming together over the course of four evenings to address our own traditions’ histories and texts of racism and/or anti-semitism, as well as elements of our own traditions’ theologies and how they call for anti-racism and radical inclusion. We’ll be addressing our communities’ work, obstacles, and goals around these issues, as we connect as neighbors and as friends. During each session leaders from the congregations will bring examples of guiding lights and stumbling blocks for neighborliness and allyship. Leaders Pastor Ben Hogue, Rabbi Hannah Spiro, Pastor Lucius Dalton, and Pastor Mike Wilker welcome all to join! We hope that participants will commit to attend all four sessions, and register by 9/9 so that we can plan effectively. This is a virtual Zoom service.
