To the Temple B’nai Abraham community,
We write today with important information regarding COVID-19 and our evolving response to this communal challenge and public health pandemic.
We are living in a time of anxiety, fear, and many unknowns. At times like this, we are most in need of community support, and we are doing all we can to keep community functions running for as long as we can safely do so, while doing what we can to keep everyone healthy and prevent the spread of the virus. President’s Message >>
We are a congregation that is more than 165 years old that works together to define our own independent path. We strive daily to be faithful to the teachings of the Torah, dedicated to the acquisition of Jewish knowledge, and committed to the well-being of the Jewish people in America, Israel and around the world.
We would love to meet you.
