Helpful Information and Community Services

In addition to many virtual experiences hosted by Temple Shalom, we have come across several websites that offer helpful information, community services, and interesting virtual events.

This continues to be a very difficult time. Some of us are handling physical distancing better than others. We know that staying home and staying healthy can be incredibly isolating and we are here for you if you need to talk, reflect, pray, and learn. Thank you to everyone who has stepped up to lead services, classes, check in on one another, let us know how we can help you, and more. The power of this community is incredibly strong even when we can't be physically close. As we physically distance ourselves, our priority is to make sure we are not socially isolated.
