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

By March 30

Before March 30, please record your own video (ideally, under three-minutes) via smartphone or other device with your thoughts about what makes TEMV special to you. 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.) We will likely also have another day of recording at the temple (with recording equipment already set up) for those who prefer to do it that way. Parents: We welcome children’s participation, but you must 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.
