Gemilut Hasadim - Caring for Each Other
Under the umbrella of our Chesed/Caring Committee, WES members support each other in numerous ways:
- Our Bikkur Cholim Task Force arranges for hospital visits, phone calls, cards, and meals for members who are incapacitated by illness.
- For our members who suffer the loss of a loved one, the Mourning Task Force assists with shivah arrangements, including services/minyanim, food, and miscellaneous details.
- Finally, our Kesher Task Force matches unemployed or underemployed WES members with resources from within and beyond the WES community, reaches out to our homebound members to alleviate their sense of isolation, and generally provides whatever support our members require in time of need.
