Anxiety in the Time of Coronavirus - Uncertainty is everywhere.  “How long will we be staying home?”  “What will happen with my job?”  “How do I raise kids in a time of fear?”  This session will focus on how to restore some equilibrium and deal with the issues we all face. Time: Thursday, March 26 at 8:20 pm
Moderator: Rabbi Klein   Panelists: Matt Pulewitz, PsyD. and Donna Stein, ACSW  
Passover in the Midst of a Pandemic - For many of us, Passover is a time to gather with dear family and friends. That won’t happen this year. So how do we deal with the loss of that loving contact?  How do we create a meaningful seder in a small setting?  Can we prevent this 11th plague from ruining our Passover experience? Time:  Thursday, April 2 at 8:20 pm
Moderator: Rabbi Dermer   Panelists: Barry Wilansky, MA, CASA and  Steven Greenfield, MA
What Do I Say to the Kids? -  The quarantine of families creates an immense challenge to families with children at home.  How do we explain this time of strain?  How can we enlist our children in the family enterprise of survival?  Ten years from now, how will our kids remember and describe this experience? Time: Monday, April 6 at 8:20 pm
Moderator: Rabbi Dermer   Panelists: Lois Stein, ACSW and Barbara Libov, PhD
Home Alone—and Lonely - Many of our congregants live alone.  In the best of times, this can be challenging.  But to be deprived of outside activities and the ability to meet up with friends is an even greater strain.  This session is especially for people who live alone and for congregants worried about a loved one who is. Time:  Tuesday, April 14 at 2:00 pm
Moderator: Rabbi Klein  Panelist: Felise Fox, PhD, LCSW, BCD

Sale of Chametz

With Passover approaching, it is once again time to rid our homes of chametz (leaven). The tradition of selling our chametz to a non-Jew helps us fulfill this mitzvah. You can authorize our Rabbis to sell your chametz online by clicking here. If you prefer doing it by mail, you can print the form here. Please make sure to authorize the Rabbis to sell your chametz by April 7, 2020.
