Pastoral Care

helping-hand.jpgWe Care About Our Members

Our clergy and community care about you. We want to know what is happening in your life. Please let us know how we can support you and celebrate with you. We are committed to providing pastoral guidance and support through the joys and struggles of life’s journey. Please contact the Temple office at 836-6565.

Hospital Visitation

Each week, our Temple office contacts local hospitals for the names of TBZ members who have been admitted, so that our clergy may call or visit. However, several hospitals are now unable to provide names or information due to the HIPAA Privacy Law. If you or a loved one are admitted to a local hospital, please contact the Temple office at (716) 836-6565 to let us know.

For Those in Need of Healing

During Shabbat and Holy Day services we ask people to call out the names of those in need of healing and to focus their thoughts and prayers on the person.
As a congregational family, we look for ways to let our members reach out to each other in meaningful ways. If you would like us to read the name of a family member in need of healing, please call the Temple office at (716) 836-6565 Ext.132 with the name by Thursday 5 p.m.
In order to respect people’s privacy we will only accept names from members of the immediate family. In order to make sure the list is current and we are not reading the names of those who have healed, you will need to call the name in every week.

In the Event of an Emergency

If you are experiencing an after-hours emergency, please call (716) 836-6565, ext. 4. This phone is monitored 24/7 and is for life-cycle emergencies for members only.
