Covid-19 Community Resources in this Crisis

We hope you are well and following CDC guidelines for staying safe. We are a community, and our leaders and volunteers and working hard to make sure we remain connected during difficult time.

 

 

If you are the leader of a council or committee, we’ve launched a Facebook group to work together and share information. We encourage all council and committee chairs (or a designee) to join the group by emailing tikkunolam@templeshalomdallas.org with your Facebook page name. The purpose of this Facebook Temple Shalom Council & Committees Resource Group is to be a hub for conversation, communication and resources during this time of social distancing and isolation.

Members of the Tikkun Olam Council, and other Temple Shalom Councils & Committees are identifying helpful information for this page. If you have a suggested resource, please email tikkunolam@templeshalomdallas.org for suggestions.

 

Worship, activities and member connections have moved online for the duration of this evolving situation. The Temple Shalom Facebook Page and Temple Shalom Facebook Group are great places to find friends, see what is going on, and hear from our clergy. Your ideas and willingness to help one another in this new environment are vital. Please be in touch. Follow the Temple Shalom Covid-19 page for updates from temple leadership and clergy to help you stay connected and informed.

DAI Covid-19 Resources

The Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas has set up an intake form for those in need. This is not a health related form, but one for needed services such as food, kosher food, or mental health counseling – especially for those not covered under other community programs already. This is a self-reporting form, and members of JFS and the Federation will review these forms daily and make contact as they are able. Community Health Crisis Needs Intake Form
