Chesed Notes

Would you like to be included on a list of people willing to prepare or deliver meals to Adams Street families in need of chesed at the time of a birth, death, or illness? 

If you would like to be contacted in these circumstances, please send your name, phone number and e-mail address along with any specific instructions (e.g., "I am happy to deliver meals, but I don't have any time during the week to cook.") to the following members of the Chesed Committee:

  • Shiva meals: Ilana Medvedovsky ()
  • Births: Anna Steingart ()
  • Serious Illness: Nechama Fleischmann ()

We would like to keep names on file so that we will be able to contact you to ask if you are available to help when a situation arises.

Donate to the Shul Without it Costing You a Cent

When you shop at The Butcherie in Brookline, remember to ask for your receipt to be stamped. When you bring your stamped receipts to the shul, we turn them in, and The Butcherie donates to the Shul.

Bring your Butcherie receipts to the Shul and drop them in the pouch on the office door.  The Butcherie will donate 3% of your credit card purchases, and 5% of your cash or check purchases, to the Shul. It adds up!

Hey, People of the Book!

Many of us buy stuff over the Internet; everything from books and DVDs to pet food and tomato sauce. And many of us use Amazon.com, the world's largest store. Instead of going to Amazon.com by typing that into your computer, please go there by using one the links below, and Amazon will donate about 6% of your purchase to the shul.  Since they usually have the best prices, you save too!

For example: Here's a link to buy the Artscroll Siddur: Nusach Sefard (the same Siddur we use in the Shul).  And here's the The Chumash: The Stone Edition (the same one we use in the Shul). Or any Books at all!

In fact, Amazon donates to the Shul when you buy anything (if you go to Amazon via our links), including: 

So please use these links to help the Shul whenever you shop. Thanks!

If You Feed Them, They Will Come

Bert Grand at the Shul Centennial Red Sox OutingWe hope you have enjoyed the pleasant socializing each week after Shabbat morning services. Have you ever wondered how the shul manages to provide the kiddush even on weeks when it has not been sponsored? 

The Grand Family Kiddush Fund sponsors the kiddush whenever no one else has.  Even if you cannot sponsor a kiddush on your own, small donations in any amount are always welcome.  Simply designate that your donation is for The Grand Family Kiddush Fund. 

It's a nice way to honor someone, celebrate a simcha, or memorialize a loved one.  You can donate online now.
