We appreciate your understanding while we continue to engage on a digital format. Our priority is to promote the safety and health of our community. We will periodically evaluate the situation, taking into account government regulations, CDC advisement, and measures taken by other houses of worship and 55+ communities.
We miss seeing all of you in person, but we can still call, write emails and cards, and see each other on Zoom.
Please join us each Friday night at 7:00 pm on Zoom. On the 1st and 3rd Fridays we will light candles and sing a song or two to welcome Shabbat together. On the 2nd and 4th Fridays we will conduct a Shabbat service. Please email info@templesolelSC.org to receive the unique link to each week’s Zoom or to be added to our weekly email newsletter. Let’s continue to pray for and support our community, families, friends, co-workers, and neighbors who have been affected by COVID-19.
Temple Solel SC condemns the recent hate crimes against Asian-Americans and shares the outrage at the horrific killings of eight people in Georgia on March 16th, among them six Asian American women.
PBS News Hour reports – “Even as overall hate crimes fell in 2020, hate crimes against Asian Americans in major U.S. cities grew nearly 150 percent. Since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, the group Stop AAPI Hate has recorded at least 3,795 reported incidents of hate against Asian American and Pacific Islanders.”
What we can do personally in response to hate crimes:
· Speak out and report hate crimes or incidents to law enforcement.
· Learn about the history of Asian American discrimination.
· Show support to our Asian peers and community members by exhibiting a learning, listening, and collaborative attitude.
· Be an advocate for awareness with your family, friends, and places of faith, community, or workplace.
· Take action, be vocal, and explain your concerns to elected officials.
