PERSONAL REFLECTION

BEFORE THE ARK

Our sanctuary is a powerful part of the High Holy Day experience for many people. Consider spending a few minutes in the sanctuary at Temple Beth El as you prepare your heart and mind for this High Holy Day season. With appropriate masking, physical distancing, and health-checks in place, a member of Temple Beth El’s clergy will be present to help guide you.  Sign up below to set aside fifteen minutes for yourself (or your family) to stand before the ark as part of your holiday journey.

#TBEELULBLOG PROJECT

This year, our #TBEElulBlog project focuses on the experiences of our congregants throughout the pandemic and transition into a post-COVID world. Throughout this month, house meeting participants from our listening campaign, “From Social Distance to Social Justice,” will share stories of loss, loneliness, learning, and recommitment to life. Read along with us via the #TBECLT Blog - perhaps some of their stories will resonate and help you in your own pre-High Holy Days soul self-reflection.

HUNGER-RELIEF-PROJECT.jpg
HIGH HOLY DAYS HUNGER RELIEF PROJECT

For many years, members of our community have taken seriously the words of our Jewish tradition to set aside “the corners of our fields” for the poor and the stranger. Thanks to your generosity, we raised over $15,000 last year. As we prepare for the High Holy Days, consider making a meaningful donation to LIBERTY’s High Holy Days Hunger Relief Project.  The collected funds will benefit Second Harvest, which serves as the main food pantry distributor in the greater Charlotte region and contributes to Jewish Family Services.
