TBA Cares


TBA Cares is our Caring Committee.

We reach out to families experiencing illness, difficult times, or death.  The TBA Cares team helps members of our Temple Beth Abraham community in many ways, such as providing meals to families in mourning or arranging transportation for the elderly to and from worship services and/or doctors’ offices.  We reach out to congregants who are celebrating the birth of a child or grandchild, to teenagers who are graduating or who just received their driver’s license. Occasional meals and visits are extended to our homebound congregants.

We use donations made to TBA Cares to help congregants who have experienced a loss in their family.  

Donate funds for a shiva meal or supplies HERE. Please select “TBA Cares” from the list of funds.

If you wish to volunteer for TBA Cares, or if you are in need of help, please contact Melissa Baer or Susan Kronish Grotenstein at tbacares@tba-ny.org
