COVID-19 Quarantine Resource Page

As we continue to confront the uncharted weeks ahead, our support, care and concern is best exhibited Together: B’yachad.  While the building is officially closed, we have created this resource page in order to create a virtual community. We will update this page on a regular basis. As always if you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Rabbi Musnitsky, Cantor Berman, Josh Greenbaum, Karen Anolick, Jordan Gelber, Stephanie Canning, and Angel Van Winkle.

 

If you are in need of support, do not hesitate to reach out to Rabbi Musnitsky or  Cantor Berman.

Let us know if there is someone in need of being added to either our Healing List or to our Kaddish List.

Even as COVID-19 shelter in place restrictions are being lifted, there may be some members in our community who still need to stay at home. We want to offer support to those families. There maybe some of you who are able to assist those who are at risk or unable to go out to run errands or may need text support. Tell us:
Are you in need of a Helping Hand?
Are you able to Lend a Hand?

If you or your family members are in need of caregivers or geriatric care management, contact Unicity Healthcare for assistance.
