This year, my family and I are experiencing the “Ultimate Omer,” as we eagerly anticipate the days until (God-willing) the arrival of a new baby. Our house is in a state of total chaos, as we near the completion of our craziest “nesting” idea yet, a full kitchen remodel, and make preparations for the newest member of our family. There are checklists to be made, car seats to be installed, baby clothes to be washed and organized, according to size. There are bassinets, highchairs, baby monitors, bouncers to be dragged out of garage storage, and hospital overnight bags to be packed. The list in my head goes on and on, with each day blending seamlessly into the next -- until we reach “go time” and everything we know as a family of three changes.
Wilshire Boulevard Temple Online
Welcome to WBT@home, our online community where we gather to play, pray, learn, and connect.
Throughout our rich history, the Jewish people have faced times where we could not visit our temples – but found creative ways to keep our culture alive. In that tradition, we are creating Jewish experiences to bring Wilshire Boulevard to you.
Social distancing, so contradictory to our core value of bringing our community together, may keep us physically apart. Yet there has never been a greater need to find ways to come together.
Here at WBT@home, you will find a calendar of events and activities, videos, tips, and articles to help you stay safe, healthy, and connected to our kehillah.
