Tuesday, February 25, 2020 30 Shevat 5780

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Location: 16 Rainbow Ridge Drive, Livingston
Dear Etz Chaim Family,
The Torah teaches us עולם חסד יבנה - that our world must always be one of kindness. To that end, we are very excited to share that Etz Chaim is starting a Chessed Committee. Our incredible community has amazing resources, and we want to ensure that every member feels welcome, supported, and loved in times of happiness, sadness or great need. The committee will be led by Debbie Zuckerman and Mara Berger. 
We are looking for members who will volunteer and help whenever needed. Whether for the birth of a baby, welcoming new friends, a move to a new home, or comfort during difficult times such as a loss or illness in a family, we want to make sure that Etz Chaim is always there and ready to lend a hand, share in the simcha or give needed support. 
Listed below are some of the areas we hope to cover. We welcome your ideas to make these projects a reality, and of course are open to areas we may have forgotten.
