It is indeed our community that sustains and nourishes us. Let us continue to be there for each other both in times of joy and sorrow. Now more than ever, as we have safely opened our Temple to in-person services and events, let’s make every effort to be present and engaged, for that is how we keep our congregation strong and vital.
