BONUS BLOG: “Responding to This Health Emergency”

March 16, 2020

With gratitude to Christina Krost, who introduced me to the Faith in Place ministry, here’s what its President and Executive Director Brian Sauder wrote earlier today —

As we continue in this uncertain time, we also want to share this encouraging prayer written by Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky of B’nai David-Judea Congregation in Los Angeles — 

Every hand that we don’t shake must be a phone call that we place.

Every embrace that we avoid must become a verbal expression of warmth and concern.

Every inch and every foot that we physically place between ourselves and another, must become a thought as to how we might be of help to that other, should the need arise.

“So, as we keep a level of social distance, let us all remain spiritually near to each other, by responding to this health emergency with love and care for everyone’s well-being.

May Adonai give us the wisdom to continue to react appropriately to this crisis and heal those who have been infected.

— Amen and amen.
