Services & Dinners

High holidays and Covid-19

We hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and well. Beth Ami is on zoom every day; you can drop in to services just to say hi and connect with people.

Rabbi Mordecai Miller has written a letter explaining our decision to continue services on Zoom, including through the High Holidays. Information and a schedule of holiday activities is in High Holiday information, the last 2 pages are a schedule chart. The schedule alone: High Holidays schedule 2020. We will do everything we can to enable everyone to get online and attend. 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!
At the urging of Nursery School parents and some CBA members, we’re creating a team of volunteers who “can do” for the vulnerable among us: go grocery shopping, for example, or read aloud to someone with poor eyesight. You’ll hear more as this develops.

Stay well friends,
Carolyn Metz, President,
and Rabbi Mordecai Miller
