Be a Part of L’dor Vador: The TEMV Storytelling Project

Sunday, March 11, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

As we enter a period of transition for TEMV and look ahead to the 70th anniversary of TEMV’s founding in two years, we would like to compile and share some of our community’s stories. We therefore invite you to participate in the L’dor Vador: The TEMV Storytelling Project.

On Sunday, March 11, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., please come to the TEMV sanctuary to record a short (ideally, under three-minute) video of your thoughts on what makes TEMV special to you. Please e-mail to RSVP and let us know what time you plan to arrive. We will have a camera set up; there’s nothing you need to bring. Parents: We welcome children’s participation, but you must be there to confirm that this is okay with you.

Alternatively, before March 30, record your own video via smartphone or other device, and send it to us via the free and simple service. (Please do not send us video files via your usual e-mail service, as they are generally too big to handle easily via e-mail.)

You may also send written reflections before March 30 to as plain e-mail, a Microsoft Word document, Google Doc, or PDF. We may edit gently for typos.

We will compile all of the videos and all of the written reflections into items to share with our community. You will also have the option of allowing us to share your videos and/or writings on TEMV’s public website and social media channels so that the wider world in Lowell and beyond can learn more about the community we have created here at TEMV.
