"Kol yisrael arevim zeh bazeh, All of Israel are responsible for each other" (Shevuot 39a). Through simchas and sorrows, as members of a sacred community it is incumbent upon each of us to provide one another support and spiritual nourishment.
We can provide nourishment in another way as well. Whether a member of our community is facing illness, bereavement, addition of a new family member, or is simply feeling overwhelmed, providing that person/family with a meal not only provides physical nourishment and respite from a daily responsibility, but also deepens our relationships with each other and our community.
NVHC Cares has a team of volunteers ready to cook up a meal when a community member is in need. This week's Mitzvah Monday is to challenge you to join the team and commit to cooking a meal for a member of our community.
Send an email to [email protected] to be added to the distribution list.
When meals are needed, you will receive the link to an online sign-up with details about the person’s preferences and when they would appreciate having the meal delivered.
…and keep in mind that NVHC Cares is here for you too. Please reach out to the clergy or send us an email if you are in need at [email protected] or [email protected].
