Caring Community of IHC

We are a team of caring and compassionate individuals who desire to fulfill our Jewish responsibility to perform deeds of loving kindness by serving the needs of our IHC families.

Our Caring Community volunteers can provide:

  • a meal during illness
  • a ride to and from synagogue events
  • a friendly phone call
  • or a postcard to cheer.
  • High Holy Day’s distribution of flowers and prayer books.

To let us know if you would like our assistance or volunteer to help, please contact Andrea Burnett.



IndyChai is a fun, accepting community of Jewish young professionals in their 20s and 30s who belong to or who have reached out to IHC. All are welcome!

The goal of IndyChai is to create a sense of community with Jewish young professionals in Indianapolis, whether you’re affiliated with a synagogue or not. Our main focuses are to provide fun and exciting social events with Jewish spiritual content and to develop social action initiatives throughout the Indianapolis community.

We understand that a Jewish connection is important to Jewish young professionals in Indy, and we strive to offer new and unique events, like Beer Havdalah and Shabbat in the City.

LAF (Life After Fifty)

Meetings: See master calendar for upcoming events

Welcome to LAF – Life After Fifty – IHC’s new social program for the “more mature” members of the congregation, age 50+. Our goal is to provide you – whether single, married, divorced, or widowed – an opportunity to connect with other congregants by building on existing friendships and encouraging new ones. We’ve been busy listening to suggestions, planning some fun events, and looking ahead to the future. 

Brit Olam Social Justice

We are dedicated to this idea:
Brit Olam translates to ‘Covenant With Our World’: The Brit Olam reminds us of the words from Pirkei Avot: “Study alone is not enough, our tradition demands action.”
Currently, the team is in the middle of a community read of “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City with Brit Olam. Evicted is the winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the PEN/John Kenneth Galbraith Award for Nonfiction, and others. The book highlights the issues of extreme poverty, affordable housing and economic exploitation in the U.S. The  final discussion is 12/30. Email Bob Hewitt to join the group or for information. Download your copy of the Evicted In Indiana reading guide.
