As COVID-19 became a reality, I took the opportunity to visit congregants near their homes, connecting pastoring, learning and laughing together. This video collage shares photos taken during those visits as well as some of my reflections on this experience shared over the 5781 High Holidays.
Since the start of the pandemic, my clergy team has alternated preparing daily video messages to uplift and connect with our congregants. For this Daily Lift from July 2020, I share about approaching challenges from a different perspective.
Starting in 2018, my clergy team determined to enhance our adult education offerings by sending the monthly video teachings. For this February 2020 message, I share about the meaning of the then-upcoming holiday of Tu BiShvat.
