A link to this week’s abbreviated service. Be well, be strong and get strength from each other: https://youtu.be/f23EsIxP4Eo

We are in a unique time in our lives and history. Out of darkness comes great light, out of bitterness come goodness and out of despair comes great hope.  The Prophet Micha in this week’s Haftarah Shabbat Hagadol states: “I am sending to you Elijah the Prophet before the awesome and great day…” I would like to suggest the Psalm 121 be read each day “…I raise my eyes upon the mountains; where will come my help? My help is from God…”

We are pleased that several members joined us on line/Zoom for a Judaic studies session this past Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. and we’ll continue next week.   Any one may join the live discussion on the issues facing us. We’ll be on Zoom live on the first night of Passover, April 8th at 5:00-5:45 p.m. We will also provide a full Sabbath Evening Service on YouTube tomorrow. It will be taped at 10 a.m. and be available thereafter. We will do all in our power to stay in touch with you. Please let us know if you need an advise or assistance. We are here to help you at all times – We would love to hear from you by joining in and with your comments & suggestions

Message to our members and friends: Our congregation and communities around the world are facing & experiencing the Coronavirus that requires of them to make difficult decisions for the sake of everyone’s health. Locally, we must follow the guidelines of our health authorities: stay home – personal hygiene – stay in touch with family and friends through social media. Stay safe & May God assist as with caring for each other.
