Simchat HaLev Needs Your Help!

Simchat HaLev congregants care about each other, the community, and our world.  How?  By demonstrating kindness with a caring heart, generosity, and helpfulness, by supporting one another as we face life's challenges, and by celebrating important moments.  As a community of faith, we reach out to help our neighbors are we are taught: "You shall not oppress the stranger for you know the experience of having yourself been a stranger in the land of Egypt."  As a congregation, we partner with G-d to repair our world by getting personally involved.  Through prayer, volunteering, giving tzedakah, spreading love, compassion and peace, smiles and hugs, and in the fight for social justice, we show G-d we understand what it means to be a community that cares. Help is help others.  Volunteers are needed. Let us all put our words and intentions into action.  G-d needs your help. Get Involved. Meet New friends. Do a mitzvah.
