Coronavirus Update April 7, 2021

We are grateful that so many of us have already been vaccinated and many more will be in the coming days and weeks. With hope and optimism in the air, we recognize that we are not out of the woods yet and the CDC and our own experts continue to recommend caution. As such, our Working Group continues to meet on a frequent basis to evaluate the latest data and guidelines. We continue to take a very cautious approach to the services we are offering both indoors and outdoors and continue to follow every precaution and safety protocol.

We welcome you- subject to our safety criteria and your comfort level - to join our indoors or outdoors, daily and shabbat services -- ALL BY ADVANCE REGISTRATION AND APPROVAL. Request a spot here.




Until we resume regular in person programs and activities- and to our friends who reside far away- we remain virtually close through our wide array of virtual programs, lectures, classes, and activities, along with the many acts of hesed that are being provided by our wonderful congregants and staff.


Check our COVID-19 webpages for all virtual programming details and resources and follow our emails for updates and reminders.
