A message from Rabbi Abram Goodstein

Dear members and friends of Congregation Beth Sholom,

A year ago, on March 13th 2020 we made the difficult and unprecedented decision to shut down Congregation Beth Sholom. It was a challenging choice and even more difficult was thinking about what the future held for our community.  Back then we could not even guess at the possible repercussions of our decision. Our only priority was to keep our community safe and healthy.  While the fear was great, I still felt a glimmer of hope for our community. This month as we enter into the month of Nisan that glimmer has turned into a shining beacon.

 

I am so appreciative of what our community has been able to accomplish during this long and difficult year. We held ourselves together and supported each other as we navigated the tragedies, difficulties, and complexities of a world infected by Covid. While we will be holding Passover a second time online, the increased sunlight shines our way into a brighter future.

 

Even though it was difficult, I still have so many positive memories from this past year. From the pride I felt for our community making masks for the homeless to the laughs I shared with our weekly online Torah study group, we found joy despite the virus’s hardship. From how my heart sored with our Bnei Mitzvah kids and to the satisfaction I felt from the increased attendance of our new programming, we found opportunity despite the virus’s destruction. If this virus has taught me anything, its taught me that we can persevere, that we can even thrive, despite the perils of this pandemic. So thank you and I look forward to seeing all of you over zoom for our community Passover Seder on March 28th at 7 pm.

 

 

B’Sholom,

 

Rabbi Abram Goodstein
