Dear CBSW Members:
These days are so difficult for us – not to mention unprecedented -- and we hope you know you are on the minds of your CBSW leadership, clergy, and staff.

We are all here for you.  We know we cannot be together physically, as we have made the difficult (but safe) decision to close our physical building.  You should know that Rabbi Goldberg, Helen, and the CBSW Board are here for you - just virtually - to help all of you navigate through this uncertainty.  In fact, you will see our programming, education, and services will be virtual, for now. 

Even though we are not meeting in person, CBSW Religious School is here for you and continuing to find new and creative ways to bring Jewish education to you at home.  We will still be providing our families with Hebrew and Judaic materials for our students to stay connected and engaged. As you scroll through this announcement, you will see some of those opportunities for classroom meetings, via Zoom.  And, you have already experienced our services, lunch-n-learns, and torah study virtually, which will continue.

We are eager to help and support you where we can. The best steps you can take now are to follow all CDC and other medical and government notices on self-care and public spaces. Like you, we are taking these steps very seriously, which is why we made the decision to close our building for the new future - for your safety and the safety of our staff and clergy.  Our phones are still ringing; Facetime is an option; Skype can work; and many other social media programs to help all of us stay connected, as we should.  Rabbi Goldberg and Helen will continue to work closely together so please do not hesitate to connect with them, as we all know that times like this really help us all understand the value of our wonderful community at CBSW.

We have faced challenges - big and small - and have come through them all better than ever.  Together, we will continue to build this community and our connection and continue to be bonded and strong.

One advantage to being Jewish is that we have a history of uncertainty and anxiety as a people. We have learned that being positive (in a spiritual, emotional sense) is not always easy, but it is healthy. It is also important to understand that no member of this congregation should feel alone. We are here for each other.
