We are Here for You

At Beth Emet we support our members and their families during times of illness through the supportive pastoral care and counseling of our clergy and the member-to-member reaching out through our Ozerim Committee. If you or a loved one are ill, injured, or facing surgery, please let our clergy know so we can listen, visit, or care for you in the way that you need. Please contact Wendy Yablon in the clergy's office at 847-869-4230, ext. 306, so that we can confidentially respond to your cues and be here for you.
