A MESSAGE FROM CONGREGATION BETH AARON, BILLINGS
Shalom CBA Members and friends,
There will be some more emails going out in the coming days from the Board and myself regarding how CBA will be operating going forward in the face of issues related to COVID-19. For now:
– Adult Education on Monday and Wednesday will continue. This week, you may come to the synagogue, but are highly encouraged to join us online. Beginning next week, classes will be held ONLINE ONLY. If you need assistance setting up for this, please contact me and I will do my best to help. All classes are accessible through this link
Later on in the week we will hopefully have a plan in place for future services and events, including Shabbats, Passover, and the Centennial. Many synagogues across all streams of Judaism have been shutting down public gatherings out of a sense of caution, and we are evaluating how this might work for us.
– We are evaluating how best we can help and support each other in the coming days or weeks. Several of our members have already reached out to me to see how they can assist with things like basic grocery delivery, and other support to our members who have less mobility or who must remain homebound. Watch for an email later this week about what is needed and how you can help.
– If you need or want to talk to me for any reason at all, whether to just check in, to “vent”, or for moral, emotional, or spiritual support, please do not hesitate to contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (406-413-5367) 24/7. I can’t promise that I’ll always pick up immediately, but I will absolutely get back to you as soon as I’m able. Out of an abundance of caution, I won’t be meeting in person for longer than a minute or two, but I’ll definitely make sure that we can talk.
– Stay Safe. Be prepared. Help Each Other. We will get through this.
