Dear Bet Shira Congregation,
Our entire nation is going through uncharted territory in dealing with the COVID19 pandemic and Bet Shira is not immune from facing the issues shared by the nation. It is during these times of great stress that we need to turn to our communities for comfort and support. These are the times when coming together as a congregation becomes more important than ever. Even though we are practicing “social distancing”, we can still be a strong social network for each other. I encourage each of us to stay in touch with one another, ask how each other is doing, and be a support network for one another.
Please join us for our live streamed Shabbat services; the link can be found on our homepage. Additionally, Bet Shira will continue to find ways to utilize technology to hold additional religious services and provide learning opportunities in an effort to find some sense of normalcy during these difficult times. We are also open to your ideas on enhancing our efforts to better serve you.
We will be updating our website (http://www.betshira.org/) with information as often as we are able to do so. Please check it frequently for updates.
If you need something, please reach out to us. You can reach me directly at email@example.com or my cell phone 305-431-7010.
