Grief Support Group

People walking the mourner's path are invited to join CRC's Grief Support Group, facilitated by clinical social worker/CRC member Jamie Sentnor. Participants may be any place along the path, from the first year of mourning to years after the loss of a loved one. The Grief Support Group meets every 2 weeks on Saturday, from 12:30 - 1:00 pm via Zoom. All who have experienced the loss of a friend, family member, or loved one are invited to attend. Together, we will listen and learn from one another, helping to make connections and finding ways to support one another through the grief process. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with Jamie Sentnor below.

Tikkun Closet

The Tikkun Closet is currently unavailable due to COVID-19.

CRC reaches out to its neighbors in need year-round through our Tikkun Closet, which is a clothing and food pantry located in the foyer of our building. The items arrive by donation only and the closet is refilled daily. No documentation is needed to use the closet. We only ask that you respect a daily limit of 5 items so that we can help as many people as possible.

9:00 am to 4:00 pm


Room at the Inn (RATI)

Room at the Inn (Room), is a temporary, emergency shelter program for homeless women and families. The Homelessness Chavurah is serving dinner at RATI the third Sunday of the month. We are looking for volunteers to make dinner: salads, main dishes, side dishes, or dessert. See the signup below for upcoming opportunities.
