Chesed


Let’s bring our CST family to members who can’t reach us.
 
Chesed is a central Jewish value, and is often translated as kindness.  However it actually encompasses much beyond that single word, to include the sharing of experiences, love, and support for others.  Chesed is mentioned in the Torah over 100 times!  While CST members have always been performing acts of kindness and support to their fellow members, we are creating a committee to further assist in providing chesed.
To assist in supporting each other through both good and trying times, we are asking for adults and teens to help start and become members of the new CST Chesed Committee.  As a new committee, we will be looking to committee members to provide input as to what actions can be taken to provide chesed for our congregants and congregation, and how we can best carry out the committee mission.
We have some ideas to get started, and will be having an initial committee meeting in the next few weeks.  This meeting most likely will be by zoom.  Committee member input and involvement may be for as few hours, or as many hours as members can offer.  


Hanukkah Adopt A Family Update

Over the past three weeks, Congregation Shaarey Tefilla stepped up to the plate and hit a homerun. We have donated many gifts and gift cards to our adopted family of three and are sure this group endeavor will help make their holiday very enjoyable.  We also want to take this opportunity to thank Jennifer Linsley, Brenda Freedman, and Harvey Mover for their help!  It does take a village to make a project like this successful!
