Friday, March 13 | 17 Adar 5780
Community Announcements
Beit Sefer, Early Childhood, Gesher, Chavayah, and all teen programs will be cancelled until the end of March at which time we will reevaluate the situation. All Adult Ed classes will be meeting online and not in person until further notice. If there are any changes or updates, we’ll let you know.

Volunteer Opportunities
At Beth Emet we are exploring different ways that we can support and lift up the spirits of one another during this time. While many people are distancing themselves socially or choosing self-quarantine, others are thinking about how they can help. There are three areas in which we are looking to build a cadre of volunteers. 
  1. Virtual visitors (check in with people who are homebound via phone, Skype, text, Facetime, etc.)
  2. Tech Help Tutors (help people with technology so they can livestream worship and Adult Ed classes or connect with loved ones)
  3. Make Deliveries (dropping off helpful items to people who are homebound)


Be in Touch
If you are in need of support or are concerned about another member of our community, please let us know so we can reach out. We are all concerned about each other’s well-being and want to be present for each other. Please let Rabbi Memis-Foler know.

Also, please send pictures of you celebrating Shabbat. We’d like to make an online album so we can share in each other’s joy. Send your pictures to Bekki Kaplan .

Spiritual Offerings
At a time in which we are worried about the health and well-being of ourselves, our loved ones, and people all over the world, we know how important it is to take care of ourselves spiritually as well as physically. This weekend, you can come to worship services in person or stream them into your home. If you come in person, we’ll be asking people not to sit right next to each other, but to put some physical distance in between people. If you’d like to stream Friday night services, click here at 6:30 p.m. If you’d like to stream Kahal Shabbat morning services, click here at 9:30 a.m.

If you don’t have a copy of Mishkan T’filah at home, you can get a free online flip book for Shabbat , a discounted Kindle ebook version of Mishkan T’filah , or a full Mishkan T’filah. It’s also just fine to listen in!

If you are observing a yahrtzeit or are in a period of mourning, click here to get a copy of the Mourner’s Kaddish. Your loved ones name will be read aloud tonight.

Additionally, the interfaith clergy association of Evanston will be recording a healing service which we will make available to the community as soon as it is done and posted.

Please see a video below about how we should greet each other on this Shabbat.

With blessings for peace and good health.

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Andrea London
