Sabbath of Social Distance

03/13/2020 04:33:22 PM



Shabbat Shalom

In this moment, when we seek community and security, we will gather online to share a little light, a little joy, a little Shabbat. May we find hope, health and wholeness especially in this uncertain moment. May we find connection, even when the times call for distance. 

This week, may we find new ways to make space for Shabbat.
