Chesed Committee

Rodef Shalom’s Chesed Committee focuses on Acts of Loving Kindness such as meals, transportation, calls, and personal visits. Our goal is to acknowledge the joyful moments in our lives, comfort the bereaved in meaningful ways, and provide support amongst our congregation. Each situation is personal and unique therefore we operate under the guidance and confidentiality of Rabbi Kobrin. 
Most of our Chesed needs fall within the following three headings:

Mourner’s Support

  • Offer meals for the family in mourning
  • Shiva support
  • Scheduled minyanim during shiva

Health & Healing

  • Visits and/or calls before or after hospitalization
  • Meals upon returning home
  • Help with transportation to medical appointments

Family Support & Newborns

  • Offer meals to the family
  • Visits and/or calls from other new moms
  • Receive a Rodef Shalom Baby Bundle gift

If you are interested in joining the Chesed Committee, or if you know of a congregant who would benefit from Chesed Committee support, please contact Fran Cohen at
