Mishpachah Committee

Mishpachah, headed by Renée Weitzner, is Machar’s special committee to care for members of our community.  Mishpachah is a Hebrew word for family, although it also refers to friends.  Our purpose is to help our members in good times and bad by providing support, be it with a card to encourage recovery or in some other way.  If you know of someone who needs a helping hand or has an important life event to celebrate, please contact Renée at rwcats [at] or by phone (see membership directory).  Please also let us know if we can share your news, whether happy or sad, with the congregation, either in our newsletter or by email.

When a loved one dies, the Rabbi and Machar’s Mishpachah Committee are key sources of guidance and support.  Machar has also taken a new step to help Machar members reduce the stress of making funeral arrangements.  Additional information may be found HERE.
