Volunteer Spotlight: The Brotherhood of Congregation Beth Tikvah

By January 26, 2024February 2nd, 2024eNewsletter, February 2024 eNewsletter

A group of volunteers

The brotherhood of Congregation Beth Tikvah in Worthington truly exemplifies the LifeCare Alliance tagline: Being There Matters™!  For the past 20 years, they have delivered Meals-on-Wheels on or around the Christmas holiday. As members of a Jewish synagogue – which does not observe Christmas – they like to relieve regularly scheduled volunteers so that they may have the holiday off to spend with their families and friends.

The group makes a whole day out of volunteering. They begin their day at a local establishment, catching up over breakfast. They then arrive at our Harmon location around 10 am where their leader, David Binkovitz, provides training and quick tips. Pairing up, the team members are assigned their routes before going out to deliver hot and nutritious meals to hundreds of Meals-on-Wheels clients.

Jeff Wasserstrom has been volunteering since 2004. His son joined him in 2009, back when he was just 11 years old.  The two have turned this into their own father-son bonding tradition, serving the community together every year since.

The brotherhood has delivered meals to close to 1,500 clients since they began in 2003, and they’ve helped hundreds of regular volunteers be able to spend the holidays with their loved . We sincerely thank them for their dedication and commitment over the past 20 years, and we look forward to their next 20 years of support.

If your group would like to get involved and start your own annual tradition, please reach out to Volunteer@lifecarealliance.org.
