Caring Community

The purpose of the Paul S. Lazar Caring Committee at Temple Emeth is to create a stronger caring community by offering various forms of assistance to congregation members. We do this by mobilizing Temple volunteers to support one another. You can contact us when you need our services and to volunteer.

Caring Committee activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Welcoming new members
  • Assisting at a house of mourning
  • Visiting/calling congregants who are ill
  • Helping ill congregants with meals, company and support
  • Providing “Food for Friends” as requested
  • Lending medical equipment
  • Creating and delivering Remembrance Baskets to congregants who lost loved ones in the past year during the High Holiday period
  • Publicizing services for seniors

Please don’t hesitate to reach out when you need help. Requests are kept confidential.

We invite all congregants to volunteer by joining the committee or helping with the many activities listed above. To volunteer, please complete a multicolored Caring Committee Volunteer card found in the Temple lobby. Put the completed cards in the box by the office or mail them to the Temple.

You don’t have to attend meetings or even volunteer multiple times a year. Just let us know which Mitzvah you are interested in doing. We will contact you when we need you. All volunteers are very much appreciated.

Please complete this form and email it to, or mail it to the Temple office: Attention Caring Committee.

Special Program Offered by Cantor Ellen Tilem
The Kinship of Sorrow
Beginning Wednesday, February 1, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.

Join Cantor Tilem in the Museum each Wednesday from 5:00 pm to 5:45 pm, beginning February 1, for an exploration of loss and moving forward, using study, sharing, and song. As we push through loss and pain, we are grateful for God’s presence, pulling us through grief back toward the light of life. Together, we will encounter ideas and texts that will help us share our greatest strengths with one another in this spiritually based group.This group is limited to Temple Emeth members who have lost close friends and family.

Members of the Caring Committee create remembrance baskets for 
congregants who lost loved ones in the past year.
