As much as we would love to see everyone, we discourage members from coming to the Temple office unless necessary and in that event, request that masks be worn. We will continue to monitor emails and phone messages throughout the week.
Our BIKKUR CHOLIM COMMITTEE is fully activated and we have volunteers who are available to shop and deliver supplies, drive members to doctors or provide any other assistance that may be needed. PLEASE CALL US IF WE MAY BE OF HELP!
Our online daily minyan and kabbalat shabbat services have met with success. We are now going to try a new platform (called Zoom), which will also allow us to be interactive and respond and participate in the service. Please note the following:
You may participate either by video AND phone or just by phone
To join by phone call: 1 646 558-8656 - Meeting ID: 525 081 7794
During these difficult times we continue to draw strength from one another and our wonderful Beth El family and community. No one is alone in this!

Dear Beth El Friends,
I am a member of a local chapter of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom, which brings Muslim and Jewish women together to break down stereotypes, promote positive interactions, and engage in projects to help the community.
Along with our member Syd Mandelbaum's organization called "Rock and Wrap It Up, Inc.," we are participating in Hannah's Project, which distributes feminine hygiene products (not covered by SNAP) to women and at-risk teens in shelters, soup kitchens and pantries.
During November, we will collect the items listed on the flyer to be delivered to participating organizations in our area. The Rina Shkolnik Food Pantry, which is an affiliate of the Marion & Aaron Gural JCC, will be one of the beneficiaries of this collection.
The items can be deposited in the collection bin outside the entrance of the Sandrow Chapel or you can order them from the Amazon Wish List and they will be delivered for you to our chapter representative.
