Welcome to our Virtual Temple: Connecting With KKBE

Dear Friends,

As challenging and unprecedented as these uncertain times are, Jewish tradition provides some clarity: “Kol Yisrael aravim zeh bazeh — all Israel [and indeed all of humanity] are responsible for one another.” The most important way we can take responsibility for one another at this time is to do all within our power to proactively curb the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve of this pandemic. Therefore, KKBE’s office is closed, and all programs and Shabbat services suspended, until further notice.

All of our staff will be available by email during this time, and will be ensuring that important operational functions — such as paying invoices, payroll, and checking mail — continue as seamlessly as possible. Please know you can continue to reach our Clergy and Senior Staff through the KKBE office number, (843) 723-1090, and then selecting our extensions. Each of us receive remote notification when voicemail messages are left in the office. While our Clergy are unable to make in-person visits at this time, we remain available by phone and FaceTime and encourage anyone who needs assistance or connection to please be in touch. Members of our Board of Trustees and Caring Committee will also be reaching out to our entire congregation in the coming weeks.

Monday - Thursday: A daily message, video, blogpost, set of resources, text study, etc. created by a member of our Senior Staff: Rabbi Alexander, Rabbi Kanter, Steve Bram, and Robin Shuler.

Friday: A Shabbat video with Rabbi Alexander, Rabbi Kanter, and Robin Shuler including liturgy, prayers for healing, music, a story/drash, and Kaddish. 

Saturday: The URJ’s Parashat HaShavua (weekly Torah portion) resource page.

Sunday: Torah Study with Rabbi Alexander via Zoom, every Sunday at 10:30 am. Everyone is welcome, whether you’ve joined us in person for Torah story before or this would be your first time.

Hello friends. I thought that the information below  would be helpful information to share with all of you.  At this time, when many things seem out of control, it’s a good reminder that there a number of things that are in our control. The article below has helped mobilize me during these troubled times.  I hope it has a similar effect on you.  Be safe and well.

Steve Bram

Rooted deeply. Growing wisely. Cultivating community.

Founded in 1749, KKBE is one of the oldest congregations in America, and is known as the birthplace of American Reform Judaism. Our sanctuary is the oldest in continuous use for Jewish worship in America, but Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim (KKBE) is more than just a house of worship. We are a vibrant, inclusive and caring congregational family.
