We continue to move forward together into this new format for our community gatherings; here's our upcoming week of digital events we're hosting. All blue links will take you into the Zoom meeting, which you'll need to download if you've never used it before; if you'd like a simple tutorial click here ; please DO NOT log into the meeting before the start time as it can delay the entire meeting for everyone.

(if you're curious about links to Adult Education at Shir Tikvah, please reach out to your instructor.) Thanks in advance!

A Word about Money
There is a wise rabbinic dictum that says, Ein kemach, ein Torah; ein Torah, ein kemach — “If there is no food, there is no Torah; if there is no Torah, there is no food” In other words, if there is no food in our stomachs or if we don’t have the physical or emotional essentials for life, then it is impossible for us to absorb the words of Torah or experience spirituality. And if we do not have spirituality in our lives, then we are missing the essential nutrition for our souls.
In order to connect Shir Tikvah remotely, we are experiencing a variety of new and increased costs. This public health crisis is impacting each of us differently. Please make an additional gift if you are able, so that Shir Tikvah can continue to build infrastructure and Torah to keep everyone connected. Thank you for your gift to each other and this community. You can make a gift here
