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, September 24, 2020:   

 

We are now in the thick of the Ten Days of Awe and looking forward to an inspiring Shabbat Teshuba, a meaningful Kippur, and a festive Succot and beyond. Notwithstanding the amazingly smooth and uplifting Rosh HaShana that many of us enjoyed at both our indoor and outdoor services, we wish we could say it was without incident. Please click here to read the important COVID-19 update that was sent by our leadership to the participants of our Rosh Hashana Main Sanctuary service. 

 

Best wishes for a gmar hatima tova, and many years.

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.
