Temple Shalom, Newton
"Each week Fred leads our Minyan service, using Zoom to gather us together. This isn't a small task. Fred spends hours each week arranging the music, finding volunteer readers, checking sound and reaching out to the "members", a group of over 100. He has spent hours putting the service together and posting it. This group has needed each other more than ever. Many are alone, and this contact has brought warmth and caring. And, humor. Fred decided to send humor to us too. His well curated choices are most welcome. Fred is the tie that binds. This weekly service wouldn't have continued during this period without him. He is my hero."
