The Family Needs Committee was formed several years ago to "reach out" to TBD members who experience loss or serious illness of a family member. This includes either providing a Shivah Meal for the immediate family following a funeral, or the organization of refreshments for the first night's Minyan, or possibly sending a platter of food for an out of town funeral. We also send out cards to families when needed. We work with the friends of the family in need to see that they get what they need in times of difficulty.
If there is a death or an illness in the family, please contact Wendy directly at 770-962-6486 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
