Congregation in a time of COVID-19

The world is a very narrow bridge
The only thing is not to be afraid at all.
כל העולם כולו גשר צר מאוד והעיקר לא לפחד כלל‎
Kol HaOlam Kulo

Trust, connection, and working for good: these are what carry us in times of fear and uncertainty. In the rapidly changing landscape of the pandemic, the Ann Arbor Reconstructionist Congregation is committed to keeping our community connected and providing meaningful, engaging, and richly Jewish services and programming.
