April was filled with the virtual activities at Congregation Brith Achim as well as on-site efforts to improve our Shul as we prepare for in-person activities.
We had Torah study each Thursday night, Shabbat services every Friday night, Havdallah on select Saturday nights, a Holocaust Remembrance service, and another “Coffee Kibbitz” to continue engaging the South Central Virginia Jewish community on Zoom.
These events have had not only spiritual benefits, but also have enabled sharing practical COVID-19 advice to make a “healthier” community.
April also saw major improvements to our building, including security enhancements, a new access control system, landscaping projects, renovations to our playroom, and roof repairs. As part of our plans for large, in-person gatherings this fall, we also accepted assistance from the Bryant-Bolling Foundation to put on memorable holiday celebrations post-COVID.
May features continued events on Zoom like those mentioned above and ongoing Synagogue renewal activities. We also will resume our (distanced) Picnic for a Purpose series and Zoom-based lecture series.
