COVID-19 Update

NEW 3/20: COVID-19 EMERGENCY APPEAL

This year, what has come to be known at times as the “Rabbi’s Wish List” will be dedicated to the Rabbi Debra Hachen Caring Fund. This fund provides emergency money to help congregants in need pay rent, their electric bill, with supermarket gift cards to be used for food, and other emergency contingencies. We foresee an increasing need for these emergency funds and ask again for your help. And, if you are in crisis, please always remember that we are here to help.
If you are able to help in this effort, please go to https://www.cbnaishalom.org/form/covid-19-emergency-appeal.html to donate to the Rabbi Debra Hachen Caring Fund in this time of extraordinary emergency and challenge. We must rely on one another for support.

Please be on the lookout for emails from us in the future with the subject, ‘COVID-19 Update’ for this information, as well as posting all updates on a special  page of our temple website at https://www.cbnaishalom.org/covid-19.html.

Message from Rabbi Gurevitz

I’m writing this month’s column on the last night of our Confirmation class trip to Washington, dc with the Religious Action Center of the Union for Reform Judaism. Our students have spent the weekend learning about issues through a Jewish lens and have written their lobbying speeches. As they reflect on issues such as access to abortion, mental health, and global climate change, they’ve shared personally and passionately in ways that demonstrate the breadth of experience they have already had in life.

I write to you, as parents and members of our congregational family, to qvell on a remarkable week in the life of our synagogue school and to share with you that there is definitely more goodness coming!

Message from Rob

I must admit I am a little short on material this month. It’s probably the combination of twenty months of unique Connection articles and that it is, in fact, my busiest time of year with my day job. It happens! I am going to share a few thoughts and highlights.
