Here's a great idea for a mitzvah project...

Rhode Island Hospital is looking for volunteers who could make homemade cards for patients and hospital staff.  As you are probably aware, patients cannot receive visitors at this time and many are very lonely and frankly bored.  Hospital staff, on the front line, are making tremendous sacrifices for the health and safety of all of us.  Many of them are working long hours and are unable to see their families as well. So gather some paper, markers and crayons and make some uplifting cards to say Hello, Thinking of You or simply Thank You! 

A list of supplies and suggestions can be found here – cards should not include any personal information or religious comments.  Please do not include messages such as “Get well” or “Feel better” as many patients suffer from medical conditions that are chronic, life-long, progressive and/or terminal.  

Cards can be mailed to:

Adrianne Walsh
Volunteer Services
Rhode Island Hospital
593 Eddy St.
Providence, RI  02903

Should you have any questions, please contact Adrianne Walsh at or401-444-8635.

You can also send cards to health care workers in the Emergency Department at the Milford Regional Medical Center (where my husband Craig works as a Pediatric ER hospitalist).  They would really appreciate our support during this time.

With Passover starting this week, I wanted to share music from one my favorite movies that has also been adapted for the stage and opened in London's West End this past February.  The movie is streaming on Hulu and is a great way to get into the spirit of Passover and share the story of our people.

Here is my favorite song from the show. 

Stay home and healthy!

I hope you are all healthy and safe at home.  We want you to know that we love and miss all of you and you are in our thoughts and prayers.  

In our continued effort to educate remotely, I wanted you to have something that I shared with my 2nd Grade class.  Our hope was to do this together at school, but now you can do it at home!

Chag Sameach!

How many activities can you do?

Hi everyone!  We hope you are all finding ways to keep busy during your time at home. 

There are so many great things we can do to be helpful and kind while learning a little bit about Jewish values and customs.  Here are some ideas to help you out! 

Download and print off this bingo sheet.  Once you have done five things on this page, share them with me!  Take pictures and write me an email about your efforts and I will share it with the congregation on social media!  

Stay healthy and have fun!

Hi everyone!

I would like to introduce you to She'elah Katanah*.  She is the newest member of our RLYGRS family.  While her big sister She'elah the Llama* is keeping an eye on our classrooms at Temple,  She'elah Katanah is at home with me and wants to remind us to keep asking questions, even when we can't be together on Sunday mornings, during Shabbat and holidays and other fun events at TBE.  

Right now She'elah Katanah is getting ready for Havdalah with the help of our friends from PJ Library.   Havdalah symbolizes the “return to work” from the celebration of Shabbat and involves blessings of thanks over wine, spices, and a braided candle. Want to learn more? Visit the PJ Library Havdalah page  for videos, books, and additional craft and recipe ideas.

We wish you a happy and healthy Shavua Tov (good week)!


*"She'elah Katanah" means "little question" in Hebrew and "llama" is the Hebrew word for "why" ;)
