For women's reading only, girls ages 7 and up will be allowed to attend. For other readings, the age is 11.5 and up, in line with our current COVID guidelines.
Sign-up below and Zoom info at the bottom of this email.
We will be collecting Matanot l'Evyonim and Machatzit HaShekel at Shul. If you have already given Matanot l'Evyonim to us it will be distributed on Purim day. Matanot l'Evyonim given on Purim at shul has to be in cash in order to be distributed on Purim day.
We are sad to not be able to host a seudah this year but we are inviting anyone in the community to stop by our front or back yard for a brief, distanced, outdoor L'chaim, anytime Friday afternoon. We will limit this to only a couple of people at a time, if needed. - Rachel and Rabbi Avi
