Dear Beth Ora Family,

By now, many of you will have heard that the Premier has announced that places of worship must close.
 
It is very upsetting that we find ourselves in this situation again. Beth Ora is a spiritual and communal home for so many of us. We look forward to the time when we will be able to reunite in our building. In the meantime, we encourage you to stay connected through all our zoom offerings that will continue through this period.
 
As previously, we ask that those of you who are saying Kaddish for loved ones during this period should feel free to be in touch with Rabbi Knopf who will be happy to arrange for someone to say the Kaddish in synagogues outside the province.
 
While things are thankfully nothing like as bad as they were at the beginning of the pandemic, with so many people either testing positive, quarantining, or being careful and reluctant to go out, it’s time to come together again as a community. If you or someone you know needs help with ANYTHING, please email or call Rabbi Knopf at rabbiknopf@bethora.org; 514-714-6559 or reach out to the office at 514-748-6559 or info@bethora.org. This includes helping with grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions, or any number of things that you might not be able to do for yourself right now. We have a great network of community volunteers, and we are all here for each other.
 
Although there will be no in-person services for the next few weeks, we urge you to continue to offer your own prayers during this period. Hashem hears us in whatever language we speak and prayer is an important feature of the Jewish response to difficult times. Sunday through Thursday Rabbi Knopf will be leading Mincha/ Maariv services on Zoom at 4:15pm.

Of course, everyone is also encouraged to pray the regular services on Shabbat, most of which can be said without a minyan. If anyone has any questions regarding this, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Rabbi Knopf.
 
Let us pray for all those who are suffering from this pandemic. We look forward to reuniting in a few weeks for prayers of thanksgiving.
 
We wish everyone good health and Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Anthony Knopf and Nadine Anders
