CARING COMMITTEE

Our Caring Committee, in conjunction with our CAI Board, seek to become aware of needs, and to engage as many CAI volunteers as possible in conducting acts of Hesed [lovingkindness] to meet those needs. If you need assistance or would like to provide assistance, contact us by mail, caringcommittee@agudath.org, or phone, (973) 226-3600, ext. 142, and someone will reach out to you as soon as possible. Your patience is appreciated.
     • Volunteers Waiver: submit online or print
     • Waiver for Recipients of Help: submit online or print

 


                To comply with current urgent “physical distancing” requirements, our building is temporarily closed for our regular           activities and services. Rest assured, however, the CAI community does NOT close down.
We are in frequent communication (electronically), caring for those in need, educating children, teens, and adults
via video, clergy officiating at urgent life cycle moments, as well as guidance via the internet.
