WELCOME TO BETH TORAH BENNY ROK VIRTUAL CAMPUS


Dear Member & Friend of our Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus Community,

We miss YOU!

It is hard to believe that we have been in quarantine since mid-March. There is no substitute for being with one another in person to pray, celebrate, mourn and comfort, yet we are proud of how our community has come together to congregate virtually. We may be physically apart, but our Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus family is spiritually together, always.

If Covid-19 has left us any lesson so far, it is that health, safety and security can never be taken for granted. Judaism teaches us that the most basic need is our need to be needed. You and your family play a central role in our congregation. We are who we are because we are in this together, and together we are stronger.

We are acutely aware that not long after summer ends, on September 18th, we will arrive at our High Holy Day season. Our clergy, professional staff and lay leadership have been collaborating throughout the quarantine about how we will worship together on Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur, and we are preparing for every possible occurrence. Our services will be amazing and virtual. The last month of the Jewish calendar offers us four weeks to reflect on the past year and prepare spiritually for the High Holy Days. You can expect a variety of experiences during the month of Elul to connect with our clergy and with each other leading up to the High Holy Days.

In the coming days, you will be invited to renew your membership to our BTBRC as you have in years past, but this year is unlike any other. There are obstacles to face and the mountain is high. In whatever way you are able to support our collective community, please know that your financial commitment is needed, that it matters, and that the congregation thanks you.

If you need any kind of help or support whatsoever, please personally reach out to us confidentially. Remember, as a Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus family, we are here for each other and we partner with each other. As the Mishnah reminds us: “al tifrosh min ha-tzibbur – do not separate yourself from the community.” We remain confident that the strong fabric of our sacred community will hold firm, that we will spiritually connect with each other on our holiest of days, and that eventually we will pull through this and once again embrace each other warmly and joyfully.

B’shalom,

Mario Rojzman, Senior Rabbi
Ed Farber, Rabbi Emeritus
Gaston Bogomolni, Cantor
Jill Koch, President
