Hello! How are you?

The Shul’s Outreach committee and crew have been contacting shul members by phone since March 2020. Those we’ve been unable to speak with by phone, we’ve been emailing. Staying in touch is essential to community.

We sincerely thank the forty people who have volunteered to phone the congregation over the past three years. And thank you to the twenty phoners who volunteered over these last few months… We recognize that it takes a special person to be a phoner; it’s not for everyone. And we truly appreciate those who have the skills. We’ve had some terrific conversations and it’s good to know that the community is doing quite well.

If, through unintentional oversight on our part, you were not contacted and you wish a phone call, please contact Outreach through the shul office at info@congregationemanuel.ca, and we will definitely be in touch with you.
