The Caring Committee

Do you know a member of the congregation who is ill, grieving, or has had a life cycle event occur? Please let us know.

The Caring committee is available to help our temple members in need. We will provide occasional transportation to temple services and events and will assist ill members with grocery shopping and other small errands as needed. Occasionally, we may make Shiva calls, hospital and home visits to those who are elderly or sick.

Since we are volunteers, we cannot provide these services on a regular basis, but if possible we will provide referrals to community agencies in the area as needed.

We are here to help you. Please contact:
The Temple of the High Country-Schaefer Jewish Community Center


*** Assistance will be provided if volunteers are available ***

  The next few months may prove to be difficult, and we want you to know that as a member of our community, you are not alone. 
You are never more than a phone call away from a friendly visit, phone call or provisions.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you again later this spring.
May you and your loved ones be blessed with good health!
