The team at Temple Israel is immensely proud at the speed at which we reacted to the shutting of our shuls (the first time in our history) due to the Corona Virus outbreak and subsequent lockdown.
Thanks to the amazing availability of free/cost effective technology today and our team’s adaptability and creativity, we have been able to produce our usual high-quality services for both Shabbat and daily minyanim, as well as Pesach services and seders.
These online services were our very first and we were further honoured by being able to host two b’nei mitzvah (Ben Duncan and Daniel Cohen) in the first two weeks of shut down. In these very strange times, we believe that the sense of community is more important than ever, and we have been delighted with the interest shown in our events and services by members and non-members alike.
