OST Wants to Know:
How are you are staying grounded to your Judaism (and sanity) during this time of self-quarantine? Whether it be through prayer, humor, games, creative videos, how-to videos, crafting, cooking, story time, mitzvah, etc., please share it via social media with the hashtag #OSTconnect.
