Please help keep Rabbi Medwin Healthy
Attending Shabbat services is a time of greeting friends with handshakes and hugs. Rabbi Medwin is very susceptible to cold germs. If you have a cold please use the hand sanitizer provided and refrain from hugs or handshakes. A wave from a distance with a “I have a cold” will explain to her that you care.
