Our Hopes and Fears

We’re told that when we walk into a synagogue, we should say, “Mah Tovu” – how beautiful! But the reality is, returning to “a new normal” isn’t so simple. The return to communal spaces brings a lot of mixed emotions. Join BEKI's new rabbi, Eric Woodward, at one of two “reopening emotional processing” groups. To be accessible for all, one group will meet in person, and one group will meet over Zoom. (The content of the meetings will be the same.) We’ll process how we have changed over the pandemic, where we are right now, emotionally and communally, and where we are going in the future.

This is an opportunity to get yourself ready for the physical opening of the building on the High Holy Days with some spiritual preparation. Rabbi Woodward notes, “This is something we haven’t had in our society, but people deeply need.”
