  6. From Temple Israel Senior Rabbi Michael S. Friedman; “We will be live streaming our Shabbat services beginning this Friday so that each of us can be part of a virtual Shabbat community wherever we may be. In addition, you can access our new sermon podcast … We have cancelled a number of large public events including our Mardi Gras Purim Party Fun-raiser, and our ECC Movie Night. We are committed to maintaining all worship services and life cycle events. We are evaluating all other events as needed.”
