COVID-19 Programming & Response

Although we cannot gather in person for the moment, we can continue to learn together as a community. This page will be updated...

Coronavirus Update, October 12, 2020:   


Despite the constraints of the ongoing pandemic, we enjoyed an amazingly smooth and uplifting holidays season at both our indoor and outdoor services.  We welcome you 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.
