Our Mitzvah Committee serves our members who have lost loved ones, are dealing with health issues, or who simply need a helping hand. Committee Chair Bob Roiter has created an award-winning program at Shir Hadash, and he regularly seeks fellow members to learn about the Jewish value of providing comfort and help to others.

Book of Life

The Book of Life follows the hallowed Jewish tradition of honoring the memory of our loved ones.  The Book of Life will be used to provide reminders to members about days of remembrance for their loved ones, to service leaders on appropriate Shabbat Services to call out the names of loved ones, and to ensure on the holiest of days, Yom Kippur that we remember those who have passed on.
