Important Update Regarding COVID-19 and Beth Torah

Dear Friends, Congregants and Community,

A message will follow with an update regarding the status of Beth Torah Congregation.

But before we share words of hope and optimism, the most important words are โ€œlisten only to credible medical professionals, they are on the frontlines and will guide us back to good health."

For those living in tenuous times, Rabbi Nachman of Breslov wrote โ€œKol Ha'Olam Kuloโ€. The compelling lyrics set to music composed by Rabbi Baruch Chait are likely familiar to you,

ื›ืœ ื”ืขื•ืœื ื›ืœื• ื’ืฉืจ ืฆืจ ืžืื“ ื•ื”ืขืงืจ ืœื ืœืคื—ื“ ื›ืœืœ
Kol ha'olam kulo
Gesher tzar me'od
Veha'ikar lo lifached k'lal.

The entire world
Is just a very narrow bridge
And the main thing is not to panic at all.

The world today seems to be a very narrow, unstable bridge, but donโ€™t panic- this too shall pass. We are here for you. If there is anything we can do to make it easier, let us know. We will do our utmost to help our community get through these troubled times.

We will be further updating and communicating soon. Stay strong and make the best choices possible for yourself and everyone else.

David Lewis    and    Rabbi Yossi Sapirman
President                    Senior Rabbi
