From Our Community:

“Our shul’s contact us e-mail inbox.

It seems crazy to suggest that an e-mail inbox, especially one that you’d imagine would be bombarded with SPAM, could be a source of hope. But it’s absolutely true.

On the front page of our website we have a short form people can fill out to contact us. And every so often, we get a message about a new-to-the-area individual or family that’s looking for a Jewish community to connect with.

While it’s certainly nice to see that our congregation can be there to support Jews in our area, my sense of pride and hope doesn’t just come from these incoming messages.

No, what makes these messages so powerful and such a source of hope is knowing that we have members like Naomi who monitor these emails and quickly jump into action, working to help meet the need of those that reached out.
