REYUT - Our Caring Community

REYUT

Due to the Coronoavirus, Reyut activities have been cancelled.  Opportunities to help in the community are listed on our Home Page (scroll down).  If you have any questions/concerns, please contact our Reyut Chair, Katherine Rosenblatt.

Joining 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. Members of this committee:

  • VISIT ELDERLY at The Daughters of Sarah Nursing Home as well as providing an annual festive gathering for our Beth Emeth members who reside at Daughters of Sarah as well as at the Massry Residence;
  • DELIVER BEREAVEMENT SHABBAT BAGS with challah and wine after a loved one has passed away; 
    Want to join in the rotation of delivering bereavement bags?  Contact Wendy Palat
  • DELIVER NEW BABY BAGS with a mezuzah, wine and challah;
  • ASSIST WITH CHANUKAH 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;  
  • MITZVAH MEALS - we provide a cooked dinner for congregants who are experiencing:  arrival of a baby; ill or home from the hospital; family in mourning or distress.  If you would like to receive a meal or BECOME ONE OF OUR MITZVAH MEAL MENSCHES (cooks!), contact Deb Liebman or call home 518-439-6959 and cell 519-573-2280.
  • CLICK & CONNECT - with an iPad in hand (supplied by CBE), volunteers make a home visit of selected members, using technology to bring joy and connections via: Viewing a CBE  service (either live or archived); Sharing "Ten Minutes of Torah;" Viewing pictures of favorite places & sharing life stories; connecting with family & friends, and more.
    All volunteers will receive orientation to the program, and will be matched with members based on location, hours, availability, etc.  Interested in joining?  Not sure, but want to learn more?  Give a shout!  Contact Rose Golden or 518-496-7285 or Katherine Rosenblatt or 518-366-6424  This program is funded through a grant from B'nai Brith Gideon Foundation

We always welcome new members who can offer any time he/she can provide. We meet once a year for dinner and to plan the year's activities. Call or email: Katherine Rosenblatt or 366-6424, and find out how you can be involved with REYUT!
