You can continue to enjoy the benefits of Amazon shopping and help Temple, too. It’s a win-win. Temple is registered with AmazonSmile, a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices and shopping convenience as Amazon.com. When you shop at AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com for Temple) the AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the organization you selected. Choose Congregation Ahavath Chesed!
Each quarter, AmazonSmile Foundation will make the donation, based on your shopping total, to Temple by electronic fund transfer. Money will just arrive in our account….and bring a smile to our faces.
Based on our rich Jewish tradition of caring for our own, The Caring Committee will promote a culture of compassion within Congregation Ahavath Chesed under the guidance of Rabbi Matt Cohen. The Committee will provide support, solace and hope to congregants and their families during times of illness, loss or need.
Please contact the Temple at 733-7078 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you or a family member should need support or assistance. Because of the Privacy Law, we need to hear from you about hospitalization or rehabilitation. More information is available here.
Enliven your Shabbat spirit with the music of our own Friday Night Live Band at Erev Shabbat services. Your hands will be clapping and your toes a-tapping. It will be a spiritually exciting Shabbat experience.
Watch video of the band from the Soul Food Shabbat service.
