Dear Chaverim, 

Temple Chaverim’s doors may be closed but we are still very much open! Our number one goal, as a congregation, is to ensure the connection of community and Judaism in everyone’s lives on a day-to-day basis, regardless of our ability to gather in person. While it can be isolating to have to stay at home, day after day, we have been and will continue to offer programs and gatherings that VIRTUALLY connect our entire congregation. Here is what we have offered so far:

We also have a number of other events that are being scheduled, to help keep you connected and tuned in to our thriving community: 

  • Shabbat Experiences 
    • Friday night Worship services 
    • Saturday morning PJs and Prayer story time
    • Weekly Text Study 
  • Holiday Experiences 
    • Passover prep classes 
    • Women’s Seder snippets 
    • 2nd night Seder for the community 
    • Yizkor 
    • Yom HaShoah observance
  • Religious School 
    • Continued Shalom Learning classes
    • Virtual classes for ALL students 
    • B’nai Mitzvah tutoring lessons and meetings
    • Confirmation Class 
  • Program Offerings 
    • Sing-a-long with the Cantor 
    • Meditation 
    • Daily Coffee Talk 
    • Tuesday Night Live for teens 
    • Guest lectures and programs 
  •  

We have also created a network of volunteers who are checking in on every member of our congregation to see how everyone is doing and to connect with one another. And, as always, if you would like to speak to a member of the clergy, for spiritual guidance or support, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We are always here for you.

We will continue to offer many virtual programs and services as we move forward into Spring. Please be sure to check our website and the daily emails for regular updates to our program offerings. We will let you know as soon as we are able to reopen the building and what guidelines will be in place to ensure the health of everyone.

L’shalom, 

Rabbi Elizabeth Zeller 

Russell Willens, President
