Coronavirus Update
In consultation with Dr. Dan Sosin of the NM Department of Health (and formerly of the CDC), in addition to reviewing guidelines from the Orthodox Union, the Jewish Federation of New Mexico, the New Mexico Department of Health, and the CDC, Kol BeRamah is suspending services and classes until further notice. We believe that this a prudent approach, and encourage you to review New Mexico’s state coronavirus prevention guidelines.

We are actively working to find safe ways to keep our community together during this difficult time.  Rabbi Kelman is teaching his regular class schedule using online web teleconferencing, plus more!  We are also looking at other things we can do to support each other; more details will be announced soon.

As always, if you feel in need of counseling, or just need a caring voice to talk to, Rabbi Kelman is always happy to answer your call.  And if you, or someone you know, is in need of assistance, please let us know and we will try to help.

Do something for yourself & the world during the pandemic.

Pirkei Avot 1:2
עַל שְׁלֹשָׁה דְּבָרִים (הָעוֹלָם עוֹמֶד:) עַל הַתּוֹרָה, וְעַל הַעֲבוֹדָה וְעַל גְּמִילוּת חֲסָדִים.
On three things is the world sustained: learning Torah, prayer, and acts of kindness.

Learning Torah

Ein Segulah KaTorah” – there is no segulah as great as Torah learning. During troubled times, people often look for segulos – spiritual shortcuts – of all kinds, or simply feel completely powerless and depressed, shut in at home. But actually, we can all make a difference. Harness the powerful merit of Torah study for yourself, a loved one, or the world at large. While we know that it is hard not to remain glued to the news during this crisis, we encourage you to take a moment, to do something to elevate yourself, and the entire world!
