Mimi,
Here are some links to Virtual Programs we’ve completed since social distancing
began. They’re representative of our continuing our usual programming (the Bat
Mitzvah and Mini Mensches, Annual Meeting, and Board Installation), classes we’ve
developed for folks stuck at home (Folk Medicine, Romance of Sephardim, etc), a
pivot toward new ways to build community (Shavuot Storytelling), and responses to
current events (How to be an Antiracist). I am happy to provide more if you like.
