Let Us Build a World of Love

When we first began to shelter in place in March, we yearned for the day when we'd return to normal. Over the last few months, however, we've had to experience more acutely the suffering in the world--whether our own or others--due to this pandemic which has taken the lives, health, livelihoods, and well-being of many of us. During this time, we have been inspired by the selfless healthcare professionals and first responders who have been on the frontlines of this crisis offering their expertise, support and love to those who are suffering. We've also been uplifted by the small acts of kindness that have been extended to us. We hope and pray that the shelter in place orders will be lifted soon, but let's not be so quick to go back to normal. This pandemic has reminded us just how intertwined we are as human beings for worse and for better. May our experiences during this time lead us to be more compassionate and more concerned about the health and well-being of everyone. Let's not go back to what was, but build what could and should be.  - Rabbi Andrea London

During this time of uncertainty it’s more important than ever to remind ourselves of the words from Psalm 89, Olam Chesed Yibaneh- “Let Us Build a World of Love,” which has been turned into a popular song that we sing at Beth Emet sung by our very own Cantor Cotler.

As a way to spread the message and show support for our community, you can purchase your very own lawn sign (or more) for an $18 donation! Order yours today online. There will be three locations in which to pick up or we have volunteers who will deliver (and even install). And may this world truly be built with love.
