A message from Rabbi Jeremy Schwartz, March 19, 2020
Dear Friends, while we try to slow the spread of the coronavirus through social distancing, we need not practice social isolation. We will continue to build community, nourish our souls, and work to repair the world. Our Rabbi and a committee will be working on setting up virtual Shabbat connections for our congregation. Our learning also continues. Jewish Explorations families will be receiving weekly emails with activities and suggestions, from our talented Morot (teachers). The Introduction To Judaism and Tikkun Olam classes and the Mussar Va’ad will continue to meet by ZOOM. The Windham Area Interfaith Working Group will be meeting virtually, and as you’ve seen, we continue to find ways to support our neighbors, such as the Covenant Soup Kitchen, virtually. Please stay sane and healthy, and know that I am available if you’d like to connect. Rav Jeremy, email@example.com
To Our Wonderful Community, March 18, 2020
While we realize that everyone is doing their best to follow the recommended guidelines that will help minimize the spread of Covid-19 (hand washing, social distancing, etc.), we also understand that as a religious organization, we have additional responsibilities to the community; the most important, the well-being of our members; to that end, and to help our congregation minimize any unintentional spread of this virus, we have made the decision to cancel services and events until further notice.
We remain available by phone and email (provided below) for any members of the community who need us. We will keep you updated as the situation develops and more information becomes available to us.
Rabbi Jeremy Schwartz, President Anne Willenborg
