In these uncertain times of physical distancing grievers are feeling more alone and isolated than ever. Human connection and support are crucial to those who are grieving.

*Message to our Beth El Members and community at large*

It is important to keep our home security in mind during these stressful times, as we have heard reports of local concerns. Please remember to keep doors and windows closed and locked, alarms on, outdoor lights on, etc. Please be aware and report any issues to the police as soon as possible. We want to make sure that everyone is staying safe!
