2) Today's Ways to Help
If you would like to suggest a way to help for the daily email, please send it to  You can find all of these ways to help collected on our Covid-19 Resources page here.
Show Appreciation to a Montefiore Hospital Frontliner - Project Adopt-a-Frontliner
Project Adopt-a-Frontliner aims to bring personalized messages of gratitude to frontline health care workers at Montefiore Medical Center. Once you email Adira Hulkower to let her know that you are interested in participating, she will provide you with the name of a doctor or nurse, and then cards and videos can be sent through her at
Shopping Buddies
As we continue to adhere to social distancing, we become aware of more members of our community who need assistance with groceries and essential supplies.  We want to discourage “extra” errand running, and are looking to match up shopping buddies with others in their building or neighborhood.  When you plan an online order (preferred) or a shopping excursion, you would check in with your shopping buddy, and see what they need.  We need more volunteers.  If you can help, or want to learn more, please email

4) Closing Message
What can you savor today?  With so much we are still getting used to in this time, and so many non-ideal arrangements, is there a moment in our day we can savor?  Where we do something we enjoy that we want to linger in for an extra moment?  Let's find that moment and use it as an anchor to navigate the day today.
Reminder to all to take good care of ourselves and each other.  Try to do something specific today that strengthens you, and something else that strengthens someone else.
May it be a good day,
Rav Steven, Rav Ezra, Rabbanit Bracha, Rabba Sara and Rav Avi
