“On these three things the world exists: on Torah, on worship, and on doing deeds of lovingkindness (Chesed) for others.”

Pirkei Avot (Talmud, Ethics of the Fathers)

The mission of the Congregation Beth Emeth

Caring Committee is to engage in acts of

lovingkindness (Chesed) that support the

members of our congregation.


The Caring Committee provides opportunities to help members of our CBE community in a variety of ways.  Examples include:

Celebration of Life Cycle Events (Births & Marriages)

Bikur Cholim (Sending Cards, Making/Delivering Soup, Visiting members in facilities and their homes )

Elder Outreach (Delivery of Holiday Gift Bags)

Shiva & Bereavement (Bereavement Meals, Shiva Minyan Volunteers)

Connections with Community Resources

The Vial of L.I.F.E program is a free service provided by New Castle County Emergency Medical Services to all seniors and disabled residents of New Castle County. The Vial of L.I.F.E stands for Lifesaving Information For Emergencies.


The Vial of L.I.F.E program includes a medical information form that, once completed, you put in the provided new medication bottle labeled Vial of L.I.F.E and placed in your refrigerator. The form lists information about your medical history, daily medications, demographics, doctor(s), hospital preference(s) and an emergency contact.

This medication bottle is kept in your refrigerator in direct view. A Vial of L.I.F.E magnet (provided) is placed on the front of your refrigerator to signify that you are part of the program. The Vial of L.I.F.E. assists emergency medical services responding to your home. EMS will look for the magnet on your refrigerator and obtain important medical information to assist them in treating you during a crisis, quickly and appropriately. To obtain a Vial of L.I.F.E., contact New Castle County Emergency Medical Services at 302.395.8184 or email vialoflife@newcastlede.gov.
