Everybody knows that Nemo spelled backwards is omen. And so, as the winter storm that’s expected to dump THREE FEET of snow on New England approaches, even synagogues are taking precautions and canceling their Shabbat services.

From New York and east, shuls are taking precautions ahead of the winter chaos, including Providence, Rhode Island.

At least two synagogues in Providence, R.I., have called off Shabbat services this week in light of the expected severe weather. More than two feet are expected in Providence, one of the highest predicted snowfalls.
“Due to the impending blizzard all worship services have been canceled Friday, Saturday and Sunday,” said a recorded message at Providence’s Temple Beth-El on Friday afternoon.

The Touro Synagogue, the oldest synagogue in the country, will reportedly not hold prayer services this shabbat for the first time in years.

Be careful out there friends.
