Chesed - Acts of Loving Kindness at B'nai Havurah

As a community, we are committed to “gemilut chesidim,” doing kind things for others in small and large ways. We believe that acts of kindness hold the potential to embody godliness for both the giver and the receiver.

Chesed means loving kindness, which is expressed in our community through the following acts of kindness:

  • Provide meals for the ill, a bereaved family or new parents
  • Provide child care for a family in crisis
  • Provide transportation (i.e. for medical appointments, shopping and services)
  • Facilitate shiva services (Mourner’s services) by attending or helping set up services for the recently passed
  • Visit/telephone or send cards to ill, elderly or disabled congregants
  • Appreciate and utilize the strengths and power within our community

    To contact Chesed, call B’nai Havurah at 303-388-4441, or email Becky Epstein, Executive Director at
