Home > Blog > COVID-19 > A Pandemic Year-In-Review: Maybe It Wasn’t All Bad!?
This week marks exactly a year since WHC closed its doors and suspended all in-person programming due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s safe to say that no one thought things would still be 99% virtual after 365 days.
This year has been hard. It has been hard for our staff and clergy, and we know it has been hard for all of you.
Yet — we choose to mark this rather solemn benchmark by reflecting about some of the highlights, or silver linings, from the past 12 months. To do this, we asked each of our clergy to tell us their three favorite moments from the past year. Here’s what they said:
Honorable Mention: WHC’s clergy, Senior staff, staff, and lay leadership! Their ability to pivot and pivot again and again to meet the needs of our wonderful community is inspiring.
Honorable Mention: Evie’s Bat Mitzvah – this moment of joy and pride was certainly a highlight that we feel blessed to have been able to share with our WHC family.
Honorable Mention: Ezra’s Baby Naming – What a blessing to celebrate this simcha with our WHC family! (ok, so that might actually trump everything above!)
