During the Coronavirus pandemic, we are connecting our community online and in-person as it is safe and we are comfortable. Details for events are sent via our email list or by contacting Rene at Renerose@myfairpoint.net
We are gathering both in-person and, at times, on Zoom. Worship Leaders may conduct an “open house” via Zoom; conduct the worship service in the synagogue; conduct the worship service and/or gathering outdoors; or offer a Shabbat meal in their homes. Plus, the Beth El and Bethlehem Hebrew Congregations are doing a few things together on some Fridays.
