TODAH RABBAH TO OUR V’AHAVTA VOLUNTEERS!
Since March, when our community began our adjustments for COVID-19, many of our congregants and friends began a sustained project: to periodically phone or otherwise communicate with each of our member individuals or families to wish them well. If there was a need, we made sure the need was filled as best we could by confidentially engaging the help of community volunteers and of our rabbis. Then, beginning more recently, we have launched a group of Lev Circles, small havurot that meet online. Sometimes volunteers agreed to do two or three types of tasks: calling, helping, and Lev Circle leadership, and their names are followed by two or three asterisks in the list below. The effort has brought our community members together despite challenges, and we are all the stronger for it. These initiatives are organized under the umbrella of the V’Ahavta subcommittee through Agudas Achim.
And, should you be interested in joining with the V’Ahavta effort, just contact Wendy Tomlinson at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call/text at 512 577 1516.
Many, many thanks to all who have lent their efforts to the projects. We are all hugely grateful to them. They are, in no particular order:
