Social Action

Reassurance

Volunteers place phone calls and send cards and notes of support to those who are ill, grieving, or in difficult times.

Bereavement

Volunteers attend funerals, make shiva calls, and provide emotional support for the grieving.

Mitzvah Baskets

Are created and delivered by the Chesed Committee to those who are ill or returning home from the hospital.

Misheberach Tapestry

Squares are created by congregants to be sewn into a healing quilt for use during Healing Services.

Family Promise

CNT is one of many local religious organizations who hosts a group of homeless families for one week, four times a year, providing meals and overnight accommodations.

Rosh Hashanah Bags

Are created and delivered by the Chesed Committee to those congregants who are at home, hospitalized, or in residential facilities to bring cheer for Rosh Hashanah. We also send over 50 cards, and send L’Shanah Tovah wishes to college students.

Support Groups

CNT hosts many self-help support groups, AA, NA, OA & and parent / teen group, and a Caregiver Suppport Group.

Rabbi Hillel taught, “Do not separate yourself from the community; do not be certain of yourself until the day you die; do not judge another until you are in his position…” Pirke Avot

Social Action Blessing

Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Sovereign of the universe; you hallow us with Your mitzvot and command us to pursue justice. Amen

The members of the executive board often refer to the Social Action Committee as the heart of our synagogue. The committee embraces the practice of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world through social justice and mitzvot.
