Ten Yad of Ottawa is a grassroots, community-based organization dedicated to undertaking acts of Chesed (kindness) run entirely by and through volunteers. Our mission is to help individuals and families within the Jewish community during life altering situations, such as during the period immediately following a birth, or illness. In every circumstance, our efforts are directed towards making a difficult time just a bit easier to manage.
Volunteers are needed for the following:
Sunshine calls are friendly “phone” visits, generally taking place once a week. They are intended to help people keep in touch with someone outside their regular circle during this stressful COVID period, when we lack our normal interactions and may feel particularly isolated.
Ongoing call for drivers to help with delivering meals to families and individuals.
