Dear Friends,

We hope this finds you and your family well and safe. We are thinking of you and we want you to know that Temple Shalom is working diligently to do what we do best – create holy community even in this, hopefully short-lived and strange new world. As always, Rabbi Paley and Cantor Avery are here for you. They can best be reached via their Temple emails or the Temple Shalom emergency number – 214.295.9630.

As you are well aware, all of our onsite gatherings have been suspended in collaboration with current city, county and CDC regulations at least until March 29th, and further if the city and county regulations warrant extensions. In order to continue to provide the kind of connections that we need and have enjoyed over the years from each other, we are currently offering a number of opportunities. Fulfilling our sacred mission, Temple Shalom is and always will be a place for meaningful worship, meaningful study and meaningful gathering.

Please remember that we are here for you and if there is something particular that you are thinking of, if there is an idea that you have or if you would like to help, please let us know. In addition, don’t forget to regularly visit the website and Facebook group for updates and links.
