What We Do
G’maCh (short for gemilut chesedim or acts of loving-kindness) is Ohavi Zedek’s caring committee. The volunteers of G’maCh support members of the Ohavi Zedek Community who are isolated due to mobility issues or illness or who need help during challenging times, whatever the need may be.
The committee currently offers the following services, if you need a little help or know someone else who might benefit from one or all of the services or if you want to volunteer please be in touch with Rabbi Amy or G’maCh Committee Chair Roz Grossman.
- Home visits from other members of the community
- Transportation assistance to OZ or other locations in Chittenden County (such as doctors offices or grocery stores)
- Delivering holiday care baskets to both elders and families with young babies in our community
- Delivering frozen meals prepared at OZ or by families in our community to member families in need (whether due to an illness, the birth of a new baby, the loss of a close loved one or just to help out)
