During this difficult and constantly changing time of social distancing and isolation, I want you to know that Congregation Beth David is here for you. We are working to move as many of our offerings as possible online, so that we will be able to connect with one another and to be in community, even when we must remain physically apart.
you would like to talk over the phone or by video with me (one-on-one or with
your partner and/or family), please contact Jillian Cosgrave: firstname.lastname@example.org who
will schedule a time. If you are interested in a group video chat, I will
be hosting one on Tuesday evening (3/17) 5-6, and a virtual happy hour on
Thursday evening (3/19) 5-6, where you are welcome to join me with the beverage
of your choice. Both the individual and the group chats will offer the chance
to check in and to connect.

addition, we are moving our weekday minyan (Sunday mornings at 9:30 and
Monday-Thursday evenings at 7) to Zoom. While this is not a traditional
minyan, during this time, we are looking for creative ways to bring people
together without being in the same physical space. As long as there are
at least ten people who log on for minyan, we will hold a complete service
(including Kaddish). I want to thank our dedicated minyan leaders for
being so flexible. Here is the log on information:

Friday morning (3/20) at 11:30, I will host a Shabba-Tot on Zoom geared toward
families with children, ages 0-5, although everyone is welcome! We are
still in the process of figuring out how we can offer a Shabbat morning service
online, and we will be in touch with that information as well as when more of
our offerings become available online. In the meantime, please reach out
to friends using a video chat app or the phone – it is very important that we
stay connected to one another.

I look forward to ‘seeing’ you.
