Mehalev

"From the Heart"

The world stands on three things: on the Torah, on the service of God, and on acts of loving-kindness.

Mishnah Massekhet Avot 1:2
 

Congregation Ner Shalom is committed to supporting all of our members during their times of need.  Helping and caring for one another is our obligation as Jews, we are responsible for one another, and the Torah commands us to perform deeds of loving kindness (g'milut chasadim).

No person is immune to suffering and hardship. At some point in all of our lives we face difficult situations that can be overwhelming both emotionally and physically. No one should face those times alone, as they have friends and family here at Ner Shalom.

We can only help people if we know about their needs. We rely 100% on our community here at Ner Shalom to keep us informed and alert us to situations in which people may be in need. 

Please fill out the form below if you know someone in need of help, community or even just a prayer. 

Please enter information below regarding a person or family in need.

Choose all needs above that may apply.
