Fresh Food for First Responders
Let’s thank our first responders who are working tirelessly to help us stay safe and get through the Covid19 pandemic. Temple Beth Or is partnering with Bernstein’s Fine Catering to provide healthy snack boxes to the staff of hospitals, nursing care facilities, firefighters, and local police houses. These fine workers are often on the run and don’t have time for sit down meals. Now they can grab a healthy snack, including fruits and cheeses, crudites, hummus, grilled pita, and dessert.
Each nourishing box will cost $10.
We can deliver as many boxes as you order.
The more we raise, the more people we can serve, and the more that goes back into our community.
Call the Temple office and commit to as many boxes as you’d like to donate.
We will continue this program for as long as we get commitments from you.
A portion of the proceeds from this program will also go to Centerville Backpack Program.
Upcoming Events All events are temporarily postponed through April 30th, 2020
Dear Temple Beth Or community,
There is a saying, attributed to Hasidic rabbi Nachman of Breslov, that “the whole world is a narrow bridge, and the most important thing is to not be afraid.” At Temple Beth Or, we appreciate the importance of staving off unnecessary fear, especially in a frightening environment. Nevertheless, the Jewish tradition teaches that the preservation of life and health are of paramount value.
It is for that reason, in an abundance of caution related to COVID-19, that we have made the difficult decision to cancel all programming scheduled to take place at Temple Beth Or on the weekend of March 13th-15th. For programs beyond the 15th, please stay tuned for updates—we will make decisions regarding those upcoming events as soon as we are able and it is responsible to do so.
For now, please join us on Facebook on Friday night, for a special Facebook Live edition of Shabbat-Tube, hosted by Rabbi Ballaban. The episode will be archived online and available for Saturday morning as well.
Wishing everyone a shabbat filled with calm and rest,
Rabbis Judy Chessin and Ari Ballaban
