A group of 6-8 volunteers (ages 12+ please) are needed on the first Sunday in February and October. to prepare and serve dinner at the shelter at 588 Brown Road in Fremont. WTBT may be able to assist in the cost, but that is subject to WTBT policies and availability of funds. Groups of volunteers are needed in February and October. It is such a Mitzvah!

Chevra Chesed


Chevra Chesed means a “caring community.” Our TBT community is like a family in that we care for each other, especially in time of crisis. Illness? Just out of the hospital? A  family emergency? Death of a loved one? Please let us help you and your family by providing meals, transportation, emergency childcare, specific errands, and even visitations to hospitals, rehab/nursing centers, private homes, or minyans when and if needed. Our committee can always use more volunteers. To sign-up, please contact Sheldon Schwartz at sheldon.z.schwartz@gmail.com.
