Life Cycle Events

Compassion Visits by Our Clergy


Please notify the clergy when you or a family member is in the hospital, a nursing home or with home-care or hospice. We want to be there with you because we are here for you.  Due to hospital privacy policies, we are unable to inquire about congregants. Please call the clergy office to let us know when we may visit you or your loved one.

Life Cycle Events


Please let us know about any life cycle events in your family. Our rabbis and cantor would like to provide support whether it is joyous occasions such as weddings and births, or times of sorrow such as the loss of a loved one. Contact Barbara Murtha at 215-646-5806 x220 or e-mail her at [email protected].
