Article in Washington Jewish Week about the Havurahdcast Podcast

There's a great (6/21/20) article in the Washington Jewish Week ("Hill Havurah produces podcast for the pandemic") about the Hill Havurahdcast podcast, in which Rabbi Hannah (who hosts the podcast) and Havurah member Jessica Smith (producer and editor of the podcast) are interviewed.

Hill Havurah Response to COVID-19

Even though we can’t currently gather physically, Hill Havurah remains a warm, inclusive Jewish community in the Capitol Hill area and beyond. As we look forward to the day that we can safely come together once again, we are committed to serving the needs of our community and serving as a resource for those looking for both assistance and ways to help those in the Havurah community, our neighborhood, and our city. We’ve found that even while each one of us is experiencing varying degrees of uncertainty, distress, and even trauma, each one of us has something to offer, and those offerings keep us connected and strong.

For the latest information about spiritual, financial, logistical, and social resources we are offering, as well as resources and service opportunities around the city, you can click HERE.
