What a great opportunity to experience Shabbat. Sing Jewish songs. Ask each member of the household to prepare a little something Jewish to present at the Shabbat table.

Tzedakah / Charity

Give charity into a Tzedakah box daily. You can donate online as well.

Short and Meaningful Prayers

Reciting Modeh Ani in the morning, thanking G-d for a new day, as well as Shema Yisrael, the basic Jewish prayer. 

Recite Tehillim (Psalms), especially Psalms 20, 121. For generations, the Psalms have provided the Jewish people with strength and comfort in times of distress (but not only!).

Letter in Torah

It is in a time of uncertainty and fear, that we realize more than ever that, although we must take all precautions, at the end of the day, we are ALL in the hands of G-d.
