Pastoral Care

Earlier this year, Havurah members with pastoral care training and experience formed a Pastoral Care Team (PCT) to support members during the months when we had no rabbi. Rabbi Benjamin and the PCT have now begun a conversation about continuing their work to support him in providing pastoral care to our community. PCT Co-chairs Allan Cordova and Sandy Ramirez will meet with Rabbi Benjamin and Deborah Eisenbach-Budner soon to lay the groundwork for this support system.

In our June Hakol, the PCT was described as a congregant-led group whose purpose is to provide both spiritual and hands-on support to Havurah members facing such things as illness, medical challenges, and family emergencies. The PCT has a growing "wish list" of emotional and practical kinds of support that it hopes to facilitate, such as groups for members who are grieving, a group for parents of adopted children, and more. The PCT welcomes ideas from the community, so please email Sandy if you have suggestions.
