REYUTJoining REYUT'S multi-generational committee is a meaningful way to become involved in our Temple community.
REYUT is the caring community committee that reaches out to members and families in need within Beth Emeth's membership. The members of this committee visit the elderly in various nursing homes, deliver bereavement Shabbat bags with challah and wine after a loved one has passed away; deliver new baby bags with a mezuzah, wine and challah; run the Hannukah gift collection in conjunction with Sisterhood and the Social Action Committee to make sure other needy families can celebrate the holidays with some much needed assistance; head the Alzheimer's Care Team that specially trains individuals to visit with family members with Alzheimer's and give the family caretakers some respite; and deliver Mitzvah Meals to members who may be ill or just home from the hospital.
We always welcome new members who have an hour or more each month to help out other Beth Emeth members in need. Call or email: Marlene Pressman at 439-0551 or ; or Cantor Groper at 436-9761 and find out how you can be involved with REYUT!

BETH EMETH ALZHEIMER CARE TEAM:
Alzheimer Care Teams exist to provide support and companionship to individuals with some form of memory loss whether it is due to Alzheimer's disease or other related dementias. By providing much needed respite to caregivers and socialization to the person with the disease, these caring individuals strive to make life better for both the caregiver and the patient.
The Alzheimer's Care Team consists of 4-10 volunteers and are matched up with a Beth Emeth family. This program is run in conjunction with Eddy Alzheimer's Services at the Marjorie Doyle Rockwell Center who also provides training and support for care team members. To find out more about being connected with our care team, please contact Cantor Groper at 436-9761
