How we care for one another

Mutual Support is not just a committee:

It is a philosophy

We have joined together to care for one another and to share both sad and joyous times for more than 35 years.

Our community possesses varied and rich resources - our own skills and experiences. Sometimes an empathic connection with someone who has gone through a similar crisis or has handled a common problem can make a world of difference.  In addition, members with expertise may be able to offer guidance.

It is sometimes easier to offer help than to ask for it. However, Mutual Support is a give and take operation. We all need help at sometime in our lives.  Please tell us when you have a need with a telephone call to 516.627.6274 or an email to

Some of the more concrete ways in which we have been able to help one another, include, but are not limited to:

  • Meals for a mourning family
  • Assistance in planning a funeral
  • Transportation to doctors’ appointments, shopping and synagogue activities
  • Hospital and home visits
  • Life cycle event support
