The Caring Committee serves as a support to and by Bet Torah members who are ill, isolated or in need. Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are in need of support or would like to help support our congregants.
Please stay in touch with us regarding your personal health concerns. If you self-quarantine or are directed to do so by health officials, it is extremely important that you contact Seth at email@example.com, Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rabbi Brusso at email@example.com as soon as possible. We wish everyone health and ease during this trying time. We hope our efforts to stay connected offer solace and support.

Bet Torah is introducing a new initiative to provide everyone – adults, college students, teens and kids – with a fresh creative outlet, as well as to develop a kind of record of our community’s experience during this challenging moment in time. Every week or two, a prompt will be offered for your reflection and written response. Your work can be of any length and style…prose, song lyrics, maybe a haiku? There are no rules here! You can choose to journal only for yourself or share it with the larger community. If the latter, we would just like your permission to edit and post to our social media/web site for the community to enjoy.
Please email your entries to Amy Oringel at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, feel free to contact her if you have any questions or are interested in submitting your story/oral history through a recorded conversation.
Ok, to kick things off, here’s the first prompt:
May 27, 2020: Write a letter to your younger self. What do you know now that you wish you had known at an earlier point in your life, with ’earlier’ being thirty years ago or last month. Do you have advice, wisdom, knowledge for younger you at a specific moment in your life or just in general? If you choose, think about how this experience of the pandemic has changed or influenced your perspective on the past.
