UPDATE: CEMETERY CLEANUP

Since the weather forecast is predicting rain or snow on Sunday, May 2, we have postponed the cemetery cleanup for two weeks. We are tentatively planning it for Sunday, May 16, at 10:00 A.M. weather permitting. So bring a lawn mower or a weed whacker or the willingness to run one, or trash bags or a rake or whatever you have around, plus a sack lunch and something to drink for yourself.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THIS UPCOMING EVENT: RESUMING MONTHLY SERVICES

Due to the pandemic, monthly services were temporarily suspended. Now we are taking tentative steps toward resuming some activities in an effort to get back to more “normal” life.

With this in mind, we would like to resume the lay services led by Devorah Werner the first Friday of the month, May 7, at 6:00 P.M. at the Bethel, with the caveat that if the weather is inclement we will postpone it to the second Friday of the month. We would like to hold our first gathering outside in the courtyard behind the Bethel. There are some picnic tables out there, but you may prefer to bring your own folding chair. We request that you observe state and CDC guidelines regarding the pandemic protocol — wear masks, social distance, do not bring food or drink to share.

The address for the Bethel is 1009 18th Avenue Southwest. click here for map and directions.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THIS UPCOMING EVENT: CEMETERY CLEANUP

Please join us on Sunday, May 2, at 10:00 A.M. at the Eaton Road Cemetery to help clean up. After not being able to assemble do to the pandemic, and due to the winter and the recent winds we have had, the cemetery is in dire need of a refresh. Please bring your lawn mowers, weed whackers, or the desire to run one, or whatever else you can to help with the cleanup effort, plus a sack lunch and something to drink for yourself. Many hands will make light work, and it will be so nice to finally see you all in person, face to face.  Thank you.

MONTANA ZOOM HADASSAH SHABBAT: JUNE 12,

Dear All,

Our planned June 12 Hadassah Shabbat at Beth Shalom Synagogue in Bozeman is still on… but it’s VIRTUAL! Now the whole chapter has an opportunity to enjoy the Shabbat service in Bozeman.

The rabbi has 6 readings available for Hadassah members who want to participate – please email me directly at Nancy Oyer neogeo@montana.com by May 31st if you would like to be honored with a reading in English or the Shema in Hebrew.

RECAP:

What: Zoom Shabbat Service (Link to come in a couple of weeks)
When: Friday night June 12, 2020, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. MST
Why: Honor Hadassah, Connect, Engage (old and potential new) Members in Bozeman

Our chapter planned to sponsor (buy the food and drinks) for the oneg Shabbat (the “joy of Shabbat”) after services. There will, of course, be no oneg this time, but we can still get the word out about Hadassah, reach out to the Beth Shalom community, and connect with one another. We will host an oneg there in the future.

Look forward to hearing from you soon, and stay tuned in the next few weeks for the Zoom link to participate in the Hadassah Shabbat at Beth Shalom in Bozeman.

MONTANA HADASSAH: PRAYERS AND CARDS NEEDED

From Nancy Oyer, Butte, MT

Dear All,

I just got a call asking for prayers for our lovely life member Donna Johnson from Philipsburg – who you may remember meeting if you were at our annual event in Big Sky. She was there with her husband Richard – they are members of Congregation B’nai Israel in Butte. Another of our members who called me said all she knew was that Donna just came home from the hospital against medical advice, so she could be with her husband, and called asking for prayers tonight. I don’t know many details as I didn’t even know Donna was in the hospital. Please keep Donna in your prayers and if you can send a card immediately, please send it to:

Donna Johnson
PO Box 795
Philipsburg, MT 59858

Thank you.

FUTURE PLANS, BY RABBI RUZ GULKO

First of all, I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!

I miss all of you, and it seems unreal that I won’t be able to actually come there for a long time! We are living in the strangest time ever, right?

But I want to share with you my thoughts moving forward.
Regarding monthly study sessions: I think it would be wonderful to designate the first Saturday of each month for a 60 minute class/workshop. Y’all can suggest any topic you want, or leave it up to me, or some hybrid thereof.

Now, I hate to say this, but you’ve probably already figured out that I won’t be able to come for the HighHolydays. Flying just won’t be safe enough for me until there is a vaccine. Given that fact, I’d love to brainstorm with y’all about doing Zoom services of some kind. Taking the proverbial lemon and turning it into lemonade! 😁
Let me know what y’all think about these ideas soon, please.

Sending hugs to everyone!
💜😘
