Update, January 14, 2021

Dear Congregants,
   During these tumultuous times we turn to our community, our beautiful relationships, to sustain us. We have greatly missed seeing you in person over the past 10 months – to pray, to learn, to celebrate and to support one another in each other’s presence.
   Although we have been apart physically, we still see every day the embodiment of the covenantal relationships that uplift and nurture our community.
   We want to remind you of the last line of our vision statement: We care about each other, we care about social justice, we care about Israel, and we care about YOU.
   This is a time for all of us to demonstrate how we care about each other. With COVID-19 vaccines becoming available in our area, we encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider and take the necessary steps to ensure your own health and the health of our community.
   Below you may find links to health departments, vaccination information and vaccination registration for the City of Alexandria, Arlington County, Fairfax County, and Washington, D.C.
   As Jews, as a caring community, it is our responsibility to do our best in preventing the spread of this terrible illness and saving lives.
   We look forward to the time when we can be together again, soon.
