The wildfires and power shutdowns that are impacting many of us in the Torah Circle are highlighting the importance of community — and of staying in touch with other — in times like these.

So we’re experimenting with setting up a page where anyone in our community with a cell phone can choose to be in communication with the rest of us when the power is down, to ask for help if needed, to offer help, to share information, to coordinate getting together, or to just stay in touch.

Please share any reflections or suggestions below, stay tuned, and we’ll see what emerges!
