A crucial element of building community is showing up for each other in times of joy and celebration, as well as in times of loss, pain, and grief.
Fueled by the Jewish value of “chessed,” or acts of loving kindness, we’ve created a “Caring Committee” comprised of compassionate and dedicated community members of The Well. Our goal is to enhance our The Well community by creating accessible avenues for people to support their friends, loved ones, and even people they may not know who are in need of love and kindness.
Our efforts are focused on organizing meal trains, distributing “Well Wishes,” and creating a resource guide for Jewish rituals that are relevant to a variety of life cycle events.
Additionally, we’ll create opportunities for the wider community to decorate cards and learn to make chicken soup and challah, so that everyone can be a part of creating a meaningful and supportive community.
Reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We’d love to send handwritten cards on your behalf as well as the entire Well community!
- Returning/moving to Metro Detroit
- Recently married
- Bought a new home
- Reached a big life goal
- Had a baby
- Lost a loved one
- Or any other reason you’d like to send a card!
Email email@example.com with your information, the person you’d like to send well wishes to, and the message you’d like to include!
If you or someone you know has recently given birth, lost a family member, is recovering from surgery, or is facing life circumstance that makes it difficult to shop and prepare meals, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can help you set up a meal train! A meal train is a way to let people know who is in need of meals, details about food preferences, and when and where to deliver it.
We are working to develop a guide that will provide resources and information about Jewish rituals around a number of lifecycle events. Included in this guide are ideas to adapt ritual and Jewish practice in ways that are relevant to you and your family.
