BJEP Heartbeat Chesed/Caring Fund

Building a Caring BJEP Community

chesedWe have much to celebrate in our community. B’nei Mitzvah, weddings, babies being born, athletes, high school graduations and promotions. As a community we also experience suffering. Lost jobs, sick parents, the passing of loved ones, the challenges of parenting, the stress of school.
As part of our Chesed initiative we have established a Chesed/Caring Fund, where we can have access to resources to care for one another. This includes helping families with tuition, supporting funeral costs and being present for what arises as we reach out to support one another.

We ask every BJEP Family to contribute at least $18 to support the Chesed Fund. We are all members of the Chesed committee! We all have care to give and we all need to be cared for. This will ensure that every family that wants to attend BJEP is able to!

  • BJEP Family Table Distribution Day (off-site)
    Time: 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

    This special Family Day is designed to celebrate the BJEP community. Please plan to stay at Family Table with your children.

    Family Table is the largest kosher food pantry in New England. As volunteers we will be setting up the pantry, sorting food donations, packaging orders for recipient families, and delivering to recipients many of which are unable to drive or lack transportation.

    Please plan to attend Family Table with your children and keep in mind we will be using our own cars so you may want to coordinate carpools to make the delivering more fun!
