Welcome to Temple Beth El
 

A Message from Rabbi Luna:

It has been a time of devastation for our community. Some experienced catastrophic losses, others minor. All of our lives have been turned upside down. Yet, we still have one another. We still have community. And, we still have hope. Yom Kippur will look different this year but its themes of transformation, repair, and hope while standing before God remain the same.

For those with Internet access, we will gather on Zoom for Kol Nidre at 7:30pm on Tuesday evening.

For those in the area, we will gather at Temple Beth El for a Yom Kippur service at 4:00pm on Wednesday. This modified Yom Kippur service will focus on healing and include traditional liturgy, Yizkor, and the final shofar blast. Following services, we are partnering with the Jewish Federation to offer a take-home Break the Fast meal to all. We hope by Wednesday afternoon more traffic lights will be restored but please only come if you can safely navigate the roads. If we have Internet in the building by Wednesday, we will Zoom as well. 

We will repair and rebuild, but to do so we must find strength from each other and from the wisdom of our Jewish faith. The final page of this year’s TBE High Holy Day newsletter is a traditional Jewish blessing from my family saying “Chazak chazak v’nitchazek- May we go forward in strength.” We are finding new strength as we help ourselves, our neighbors and our community through this difficult time. TBE is partnering with the Jewish Federation to help those in need, and please be in touch if you need any assistance. Together, may we be stronger and may we go forward in strength.
 
Warmly,
Rabbi Luna
