Services & Dinners
SERVICES AND COVID-19
We hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and well. We are monitoring our possibilities of returning to in-person services. In the meantime, Beth Ami is on zoom every day; you can drop in to services just to say hi and connect with people. The heading “SERVICES & DINNERS” is no longer accurate during Covid-19, but before the pandemic hit, the Beth Ami kitchen was a magical place, producing Shabbat lunches and dinners that created a lot of warmth and happiness. We hope to be back in our kitchen soon, so we just can’t abandon the title.
Rabbi Mordecai Miller has written a letter explaining our decision to continue services on Zoom. The letter, detailing measures we are taking, may be found here.
At the urging of congregants, we’ve established a “Calling, Caring & Connecting” effort, engaging a group of 25 members who are making calls each week to check-in with every congregant. Stay connected and let your caller know if you need something – from TP to prayerbooks!
Stay well friends,
Carolyn Metz, President, firstname.lastname@example.org

Beth Ami is bringing services, davening and Torah study into our homes while our building is closed. We are conducting Zoom sessions, plus streaming video on our Facebook page at these times, along with pdfs of prayerbooks for following along:
Friday, Mincha at 4:30 p.m. followed by candlelighting.
Sing in Shabbat led by Lisa Iskin and Rabbi Miller. We begin at 5:50 p.m. with a song and a story for the kids (and the kid at heart), followed by Lisa’s short and very sweet musical Shabbat service at 6:00 pm, concluding with our communal Kiddush at about 6:30 pm. We hope that joining as a community in this way, will lift all of our spirits, with the beauty and holiness of Shabbat.
