With the schools closed, does anyone here have any iseas how to help the LoCo students who rely on school breakfast and lunch as their primary nutrition? This closure impacts more students in/around Leesburg and surrounding neighborhoods than you might think. Any ideas to help our neighbors? Im good at talking, not organizing
Good Morning! We are looking for a few volunteers to help as greeters on High Holidays. If you are able, please sign up for a slot.
Remember: no Coffee House Conversations tonight. We resume next week, and conclude the following!

Why is this Passover different from all other Passovers? Oy. Do we really need to go there? This Passover IS different than anything we've experienced before. We know many of us are wondering how to adapt to our current conditions.

Please join Rabbi Greenspoon for an open Q&A about Passover 5780. Bring your questions and concerns, as well as your solutions and suggestions, to our online gathering.

[03/19/20]   As we continue to adapt to our new normal of social distancing and school closures, it’s important to stay connected. Even though Good Deeds Day is postponed there are plenty of ways you can still help others

Loudoun Hunger Relief - At this time, they are asking for monetary donations to assist in our emergency response. You can also order food to be shipped directly to Loudoun Hunger Relief from their Amazon Wish List.

Mobile Hope - Mobile Hope is one of our partners for Good Deeds Day. In fact, the Glancey family just dropped off blessing bags there this week. If you had supplies for GDD ready, you can donate directly.

Loudoun Emergency Homeless Shelter - Congregation Sha'are Shalom continues to provide a monthly meal for the shelter at 19520 Meadowview Ct. S.E in Leesburg. The only change to our regular practice, due to the coronavirus situation, is that the staff at the Shelter will serve the meal, instead of CSS volunteers. Our next opportunity as a group is April 21st. During this concerning time, it is as important as ever to offer care to those needing help. The sign up linked here features opportunities to provide entrees, side dishes, vegetables, fruit, and desserts.

Good Deeds Day - We have postponed GDD due to social distancing recommendations, but in the meantime we’re still looking for sponsorships and will have information out on what donations we’ll want to collect. We recommend you be mindful of what you collect right now as we look to avoid contributing to shortages of needed items and don’t want to contaminate items for use later. Please see the items above for where you can donate in the meantime.

Chesed Committee - If you are interested in helping out members of our CSS community, either through dropping off groceries, or just calling to check in, please contact the Chesed Committee. Also, if you’re in need or have someone in mind who may need help, please let us know that, too.


Please continue to check the Sha’are Shalom website, the Sha’are Shalom page, and the Religious School page for schedule updates, information on ways to help, resources you can use to stay connected to our CSS community, and more. We’ve also added a new page for the Religious School updates being sent out by Morah Zuckerman. She has great resources not only for our kids, but for all of us.

Dear Friends,

We are going to go online for services this Shabbat. In order to keep our larger community safe, we urge you to stay at home, and use your preferred platform to access our services. You can expect Morah Laurie and I (and possibly another volunteer) to lead our essential Friday night and Saturday morning services. In lieu of the traditional morning Torah service, we will do a bit of an extended Torah study. I will recognize yarzheits and recite Mourner's Kaddish.
I extend our thanks to Anne Greenspoon and JNF for sharing the platform from which we will broadcast the services. All you need to do is hit the link below, and enter the meeting ID when prompted to do so. Also, please note the helpful "Best practices" suggestions below. If you are new to the Zoom platform, please download the app in advance of Shabbat and our regularly scheduled services!

This is the Friday, March 13, Erev Shabbat services link.

Best practices for using Zoom:
* Click on the link provide from your computer or phone and it will take you to Zoom. If its your first time, it will prompt you to install the app so you can use it. If its not your first time it will take you directly into the "meeting".
* When you enter the call, please mute yourself if you have not been muted automatically. To do this, use the tool bar at the bottom of the screen- hover over your name at the bottom and the tool bar will pop up. Mute is on far left of the tool bar.
* If you are participating using video, you can decide if you want to be seen. The Stop Video button is next to mute- clicking on it turns your camera on and off. Even if you don't want to be seen, you will still be able to see the livestream from CSS.
* The up arrow buttons next to mute and video allow you to manage your sounds and video settings (i.e. if you sign on and the video is showing what's behind your computer rather than whats in front of your computer you can adjust the setting to front camera).
* If you call in using the phone number, you will be able to hear everything but not see anything. When dialing in from your phone, please use your phone's own options to mute yourself

We appreciate everyone's support and flexibility during this uncertain time. We encourage you to please get in touch with feedback and thoughts on the online service experience. We welcome your ideas on other practices we might employ during this time to maintain the bonds of our Sha'are Shalom community while we encourage physical distance for the overall health of our larger community.

Shabbat shalom,
Rabbi Greenspoon

Also included is the quintet by French composer Jean Francaix (how'd he get in there?). Always enjoyable music, complete with written biographical notes, introductions to the music from members of the quintet, and our meet and greet following the performance. We hope you can join us for the concert and a nosh afterwards!

From the excited energy of the first day of religious school to the last tired volunteers cleaning up after the fun - we couldn't be more grateful that you all are part of our community!
