Chesed Caring Committee

Chesed means “unconditional love” and our mission is to reach out and provide emotional and/or practical support to members of our Brooklyn Heights Synagogue community who are in need due to death in the family, illness (mental or physical) or other life altering circumstances impacting themselves or their immediate family.

The Chesed Caring Committee provides discreet assistance to individuals who desire it, ranging from making a phone call to an elderly or homebound member, to walking an elderly member home from services, to preparing a meal for new parents, to visiting or preparing a meal for a bereaved family.

Chesed Committee volunteers may choose to spend a few minutes a week reaching out by phone to members in need or, if time allows, devote an hour or more to helping our community in other ways.

If you would like to be involved, need support, or know of a member of the community who might need our assistance, please email us at or call us at 718-522-2070.
