TAA Gives Back!

Please join TAA in giving back to the community during this horrible pandemic.

We all know how people of all faiths came to support us financially and spiritually when our Temple burned down. And who can forget how many community members attended Friday night services after the horrific murders at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

So many people have stood up for us and now it is our turn.

We know that many of you are already contributing in many ways to help in your communities.  In addition to donations already made from the synagogue's discretionary fund, we'd like to send thank-you notes and a gift (such as a gift card from a local, open coffee shop) to Mayors, Police & Fire Departments and Hospitals on Cape Ann. In addition, we want to continue to contribute to local agencies to help people most affected by the pandemic.

If you are interested in donating to this initiative, please send a check to the Rabbi's Discretionary account with "TAA Gives Back" in the memo line, or click here to donate online.

Click here to let us know if you have any ideas and want to work with us on this for the folks keeping us safe in your town.


WASH YOUR HANDS!

Cantor Bruce has written us his own handwashing song (in Ivrit no less) and you can listen to a preview of it!
