The Caring circle is a group of temple members who are committed to making sure that our community responds to its members in their times of need. We respond to life’s challenges and joys with calls, meals and assistance.

Occasionally the caring circle needs a person to make and deliver a meal to a congregant who is ill.  Call Renee at the number above if you can help on an ‘as needed’ basis.
