Dear Friends,

It has been another week.

It has been another week when medical personnel continued to show us what real heroes look like.

It has been another week when we worried about the health and wellbeing of those we love.

It has been another week when the vast majority of us have continued to adjust to a (temporary) “new normal” that is anything but normal.

But, just as it does each week, Shabbat is on the way. When it arrives we will be reminded, yet again, that no matter what may be going on in our lives and in the world there is always something for which to be grateful.

I am sad that, once again, we will not be able to be in each other’s physical presence to welcome our day of rest. But, just as we have for the past few weeks, that doesn’t mean we cannot BE together.

Here are a few ways to do so.

Ways to Help

On Wednesday, we updated TSTI about the closing of the Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges. Included was a list of opportunities to help support the community most impacted by the IFPO closing. Please follow this link to see if there is something you can do to help fill the gaps until the food pantry is up and running again. Click here to access the list.
