Updates on our Jewish communal life during COVID-19:
While Beit Ahavah is not using our sacred space for group gatherings until it is safe to do so, our congregation is very active meeting online and in other alternative ways for services, learning, meetings and life cycles. We are guided by Jewish precepts including: “To save a life is to save the world.” Read a message from our Rabbi about the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and ways to connect HERE:
“Our creative, innate Jewish ability and the history of Reform, Progressive Judaism is to survive, adapt and thrive in the changing and urgent needs of our time, and we believe our community is needed now more than ever.” – Rabbi Riqi Kosovske
