Chesed | Congregation Darchei Noam
Darchei Noam is a caring community that supports members who are confronting illness, loss, and other life challenges through acts of chesed (loving-kindness). We are fortunate to have a dedicated group of volunteers who deliver workshops, run discussion groups and provide personal support in a variety of ways:
Congregation Darchei Noam volunteers, in addition to our Rabbi, arrange visits to members of the community who are struggling with or recovering from illnesses. Our Chesed Committee also coordinates cook-a-thons in the synagogue kitchen to prepare delicious, nourishing meals, which are delivered to members who need extra sustenance. We arrange rides to appointments, treatments and shul services and programs for those who require them.
Our community supports our members who have lost a loved one from the shivah through the bereavement process. We provide leaders for home shivah services, and reach out to families in mourning to offer support and caring during this time of loss.
Congregation Darchei Noam arranges and participates in chesed programs that impact the community at large, including our Out of the Cold program and local women’s shelters. Programs include:
- Food drives
- Clothing drives
- Toy drives
- School supply drives
