Yad l Yad
(Hand in Hand) provides volunteer congregants with both practical and traditional guidance for visiting those who are ill or could benefit from a visit, and serves as a source of volunteers for connecting isolated Beth Am members with the congregation through assignments from the clergy and Caring Committee.Read more
An interview and training is required before making a visit on behalf of Congregation Beth Am. Yad l’Yad provides support for these volunteers and any other Beth Am congregants who practice bikur cholim (visiting the sick) of their own relatives or friends or as community service. Volunteers can be involved at different levels including making a commitment to visit a homebound congregant regularly, helping organize and/or attend training events, and participating in meetings or social gathering where volunteers support each other in the work of visiting the sick.
