Angel Network: Support for Congregants in Need


The Angel Network’s mission is to assemble a group of volunteers who are committed to offering comfort and support to Temple members and their families in times of need. The volunteers receive the training necessary to engage in these acts of loving kindness as they reach out to the Temple Isaiah community with helping hands and caring hearts. Our services range from assisting with meals and transport to visits and calls. When a need arises the Angel Network can respond in several ways:

  • Supportive Phone calls and notes
  • Providing meals
  • Offering rides for appointments errands and Temple events
  • Visiting the sick in the hospital or home
  • Ongoing friendly visits
  • Healing Circles (Click here for more info)

We Must Know Before We Can Respond

If you know of a Temple member who is ill or in the hospital, please call the Temple and share that information with us. That way the Rabbis can visit, and the Angel Network can provide support. Don’t assume that we know—we will only know if you tell us! To do this please call Nina Jones, Clergy Assistant at (925) 283-8575 ext. 308.

Do you sometimes need a ride to services or a special event at Temple? Are you willing to drive fellow congregants to services on occasion? Call Nina Jones, Clergy Assistant at (925) 283-8575 ext. 308. The Angel Network will match drivers with those in need of an occasional ride.

We’re Always Seeking Additional Volunteers
