In the weeks since the world turned upside-down, the Wilshire Boulevard Temple community has come together in ways no one could have imagined. Despite the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted everyone’s routine, as the weeks have worn on we have all found ways to respond. The stories in this month’s Bulletin begin to paint a picture of how the Temple, its schools, camps, community social service center, and congregation have adjusted to the new normal. Difficult and challenging as this is, the value of community and the concept of helping one another have rarely, if ever, been more evident.
Stories from the Temple Bulletin, Wilshire Weekly, and other news.
Since mid-March, the Karsh Center has partnered with the Koreatown Youth and Community Center to deliver 100 bags of groceries each week to senior citizens.
While schools around Los Angeles and the nation braced for the potential of an educational fallout from Covid-19, teachers and administrators at Brawerman Elementary School began developing BES@home, a virtual learning platform geared toward maintaining learning in a way that engages students in a meaningful way, while keeping our community connected, a value at the core of our mission.
These uncertain times have warranted unprecedented patience and understanding. Where there is certainty is in the vibrant, strong, caring community of Wilshire Boulevard Temple. Since the early years of the Lincoln administration, this community has remained steadfast in bringing Jewish culture, traditions, values, and meaning to its congregants and the community. This is also true for our Religious School, and we are excited to announce that our 2020/2021 registration is coming soon!
