Hello, TBE family! We are Karen Bernstein and Jen Gillet and we’re so excited to be the new chairs of the Caring Community Committee. We’d like to introduce ourselves and tell you a bit about the Caring Community Committee. Karen Bernstein is a music teacher at Plainview Old Bethpage School District and the mother of two children, Marty and Claire. Jen Gillet is the mom of two boys, Jacob and Alex, and is an Assistant Director at Brant Lake Camp in the Adirondacks. The Caring Community Committee is a group of dedicated members that want to help those who may be going through a rough patch due to illness, a death in the family, or other circumstances. We help by delivering meals – perhaps soup and challah and/or other comforts. We also offer an ear to listen, and in non-COVID times, we can offer rides to those who may need them to and from doctor’s appointments/procedures. The Caring Community Committee provides a lifeline for our congregants in times of struggle. We’ve all been there and know how important an extra helping hand can be, and we want to be that for you. If there is a way the Caring Community Committee can be of help to you, your family, or if you know of a member who is in need, please call the temple office at (631) 421-5835, Ext. 200 and they will pass along the information to us. We’re here to lend a hand. Remember, we’re thinking of you: We Care and We Are There!
