Announcement by the Board of Directors

Dear Beth Shalom Members,

With the elevated COVID-19 infection rates in Edmonton, and guided by the Jewish principle of Pikuach Nefesh, the protection of life as taking precedence over other obligations, we believe that it is the right thing for Beth Shalom and the wider community that we temporarily suspend in-person services on Shabbat, effective immediately.

The Shabbat service will still take place, led by the Rabbi and Bettina, and we invite you to join us from home via our livestream.                                                                                                                                 The link is: 

We will resume in-person Shabbat services as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we want you to be safe.

Please call on us if there is anything that you need or if you’d just like to chat. A key part of our new Nefesh Project is helping make sure that we all feel connected with
each other even if we are at home.

Also, stay tuned for a number of online programs that we will be offering, including a conversation with Leket, the Israeli food recovery program, Hanukkah learning and virtual
candle-lighting, a new Introduction to Judaism online class, and more.

With blessings of good health for all, 

Laurence Abbott, PhD                  Rabbi Steven Schwarzman
