Story

HAHA! A Hesed and Humor Affair honors BJ volunteer groups that addressed particular community needs arising as a result of the COVID-19 virus. Represented groups include teens and young families, as well as volunteers in areas including vaccination, Bikkur Holim, the Judith Bernstein Lunch Program, Havurah, Minyan, and many more! (Note the new date for our benefit: Tuesday, June 15, at 7:15 p.m.)

Hesed means lovingkindness. It is how we take care of each other. It is the safety net that catches us when we fall. It is phone calls before Shabbat, holiday visits to the homebound, and cooking for a shiva or a new baby. Hesed is our best Jewish selves caring for our community.

Funds donated this evening will fuel our efforts to pivot from a pandemic era, remote-only existence to a reimagined, hybrid approach --  to worship, to prayer, to programming, to learning, and more. We are so grateful for the dedicated work of our assemblage of member and non-member volunteers and for your support of this event in their honor. Many thanks for your generosity!
