Chesed/Caring @ BJEP

chesedChesed at BJEP is a parent-led working group that fosters connections within the BJEP community. Chesed translated loosely means “loving-kindness” or “compassion.” As parents, we want to model kindness and compassion for our children. Part of being a community includes being connected to what is happening in each other’s lives. We hope to promote community and loving-kindness by reaching out to members of our community during times of difficulty and joy. Every BJEP family is a chesed member.

New this year, the 4th grade will partner with Chesed to create a caring community project.

Together we create a community that cares for one another. If you are interested in participating in any way (big or small) please email Chesed@BJEP.com

More details on Chesed Class Liaison positions:
We are a group of parent volunteers that work toward building community and inclusion by performing acts of kindness to families at BJEP.  These small acts can be during a time of difficulty, such as sending a card to a family who has lost a loved one.  It can also be to spread word of a celebration or recognition.  Joining the group is a simple way of being involved in the BJEP community.  We hope to grow this group to be able to assist in meal sign up or other coordinated volunteer efforts.
