A note from Rabbi Robyn:
In this time of increased uncertainty and anxiety, we need each other to remain calm, safe, healthy and supported. Please continue to follow the best practices of social distancing and proper hygiene so each of us can contribute to the containment of this highly contagious Covid-19 virus. Beth Or will remain committed in sustaining our virtual community as long as necessary.
Al tifrosh min hatzibur, do not separate yourself from community. Although the current state of Corona is preventing us from physical contact with one another, we can strive to remain ever connected electronically and virtually, especially with an on-line video conferencing application called Zoom. We are working diligently to keep us connected with one another and to provide help in any way we can. We encourage you to take advantage of our growing list of opportunities and resources below, many of which were lovingly donated by our Beth Or family. Let’s use this time to remain connected, expand our horizons and have fun in the process! If you are interested in sharing your gifts with others and want to try your hand at teaching a class via Zoom, let us know.
Let us be diligent in reaching out to each other with compassion and care, especially to those who may be more isolated or vulnerable. Sometimes just a phone call or an email can help calm fears and decrease loneliness. Of course, if you need any help at all, please do not hesitate to call on us. I, too, am always available to talk or to video chat.
With my blessings,
Rabbi Robyn Fisher
