As we deal with these trying times, members of Temple Shalom are working to maintain the connections that have grown over the years. Several members have initiated an phone tree to keep members (not just those who are staying at home) up to date on what is happening. This is in addition to our twice weekly email blast.
While we are not having in person services, Rabbi Chottiner is streaming our Kabbalat Shabbat service from our home. Other members are undertaking little maintenance projects. While we have had to suspend Bingo, Torah study and our Book Club are holding virtual meetings via Zoom. There is even the possibility of playing MaJonng on line! We are even going to Zoom for our monthly Board of Trustees meeting until we have been told that it is once again safe for us to meet in person. Out of sight does not mean out of mind.
