Sandy Springs, September 10, 2020.
Sandy Springs’ Temple Emanu-El formed a committee to unite congregants virtually during COVID-19’s physical isolation. Senior Rabbi Spike Anderson inspired the committee to build a robust virtual community called CommuniTE.
With representation from diverse congregation segments, Committee Chair Edye Disner’s team has used technologies like Zoom, YouTube, Facebook, and others to deliver programming to congregants on cooking, health, fitness, financial advice, book clubs, inspirational presentations, youth-oriented issues, and family trivia sessions.
The above programming complements the synagogue’s weekly streams of religious services and adult learning proving that innovative approaches can overcome external challenges.
