Help During the Coronavirus Epidemic

Our Shul, Cong. Shaarei Tefillah has set up a number of committees to help support our members whose lives may have been disrupted in recent weeks by the novel Coronavirus Pandemic. The following resources and committees have been set up to help people find (general) medical information, establish a buddy system, shop for life's esseentials for those in quarantine, and more. Please click on the links below to volunteer, or if you are looking for help or support.
 
If you are not a member of Shaarei Tefillah, individual requests for help must first be sent to our Rabbi. Although our altruistic spirit is boundless, our resources are not. It is unclear what level of support we can offer those outside of our community. 
 

Resources and Committees:
