A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT, MS. CHAVA LEE REGARDING COVID-19:
Reaching Out While Staying Distant
As we enter into uncertain times, our community becomes more important than ever. But how do we keep a community spirit when we are practicing social distance? The same tools that overwhelm us with information 24/7 can now be used to keep in touch with our friends and family. Use that phone not only to access Facebook but also to call your friend or check in on your neighbor. Remember how great it was to get a letter in the mail? Dig out that favorite pen and write away. Need more instant gratification? Send a letter via email. Write it as you would a proper letter and BONUS, you can easily attach photos. Many platforms exist on the Internet to do group chats, so ALL your friends can talk over each other at once, just like normal! How ever you select to stay in touch, do stay in touch. Check in with your friends, especially those you know are vulnerable, to make sure all is well.
Be well everyone and WASH YOUR HANDS!!!!
“Do Jewish” at Home
The URJ has provided the following guidelines for all of us to consider.
Congregation Sukkat Shalom is a Reform congregation that strives to perpetuate Jewish traditions and strengthen Jewish lives through lifelong learning, worship, social action and deeds of loving kindness.
As the only synagogue in Southeast Alaska, Congregation Sukkat Shalom (Shelter of Peace) is the main address for Judaism in our region. We offers services, educational opportunities, destination celebrations, and holiday events.
Community forms both our purpose and our strength. The wealth of activities provided by Sukkat Shalom is made possible through the volunteer efforts of our members.
Our Religious School provides a nurturing Jewish educational environment to teach Judaic concepts, values and practices that will inspire and strengthen individual and collective commitment to God, Torah and Israel.
Drop in, get involved and make Sukkat Shalom your spiritual home!
