Alas, we cannot meet in-person during this time of public health needs. But we can connect via Facebook, Livestream, and Zoom. Here are a list of upcoming programs, which we will update each week, until we can see each other face-to-face. We look forward to staying connected and would welcome you to invite family, friends, and colleagues to join us, as well.

In order to stay connected online, you may need to use new technology. Here's how you can join Facebook, so that you can watch our East End Temple Facebook Live content. To join a Zoom event, simply click the "Zoom Meeting Link" for that event and follow the prompts to start video and audio (and if you need help, here's a handy PDF).

We also invite you to volunteer your time and talents. You can click here to learn more about these opportunities. Since our community has been unable to hold Food for Families, we also invite you to donate to City Harvest and support those in immediate need of sustenance. Need employment assistance? Here's the latest update from UJA-Federation's Educational Alliance Career Assistance program.
