I hope this email finds you and your families all well and safe and that you enjoyed a your Pesach chag.
As we continue through 2021 and the vaccine is becoming available to more individuals, our collective hope is that a return to “normal” is close at hand.
For many of us, The Kehilah, led by Rosh Kehilah Najman, has been a calm in the storm of the past year and into the first quarter on 2021. Our R"K continues to provide spiritual guidance and counseling to so many of our members who continue to navigate a variety of spiritual, physical, financial and mental challenges. Weekly Shabbat morning davening and daily Zoom Mincha/Maariv continues to be our new norm, with meaningful tefilot throughout Pesach as well. This helps to fulfill the spiritual needs of our congregants. Our weekday shiurim meet weekly and we continue to push the orthodox community in promoting participation irrespective of gender.
As we continue these efforts in 2021, we need your support. You were all generous with The Kehilah in 2020 and with your support — and some help from the federal government — we made it through a challenging financial year.
At this time I would ask you to renew your Kehilah membership for 2021 now with a $500 membership donation. For those fortunate families that can, I ask you to consider an $1,800 membership donation. And for those of you who continue to experience financial hardship, I ask you to contribute only what you can, knowing that all of our members are treated equally and with the same respect regardless of their financial contribution to The Kehilah.
Once again, I thank you for your continued support.
With warm regards and wishes for a healthy and fulfilling 2021.
