Coronavirus Update, December 1, 2020:   


We continue to carefully monitor the COVID trends in our neighborhood and beyond. 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. For the timebeing, we continue to offer indoor and outdoor services and welcome you- subject to our safety criteria and your comfort level and meeting - to join our daily and shabbat services --  ALL BY ADVANCE REGISTRATION AND APPROVAL. Request a spot here.




Until we are able to come back together for other 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.
