Comfort through Connection

"When I reach out to you and you to me, we become b'tzelem Elohim (the image of God)." - Dan Nichols, Jewish rock musician and Rodef Sholom's artist-in-residence for 5769
Nichum, which means "comfort" in Hebrew, is the name of our caring community program at Rodef Sholom. Through this program congregants volunteer to support other congregants in times of need and in celebrating simchas. Our volunteer Nichum "captain" works with staff to facilitate this holy work.
Please remember that when the Nichum captain calls and asks you to deliver a meal to a congregant in need reaching out to one another ushers holiness into our community. So expect us to ask you for help (if you are able) when others are in need and then expect us to show up when you are in need.
If you would like to be a Nichum captain or have any questions, or if you know of a congregant who needs help, contact Moji at 479.3441 or
Reach out to people you know. Reach out to strangers. Holy sparks will fly. To read a congregant's story about experiencing Nichum from both sides, click here.
