The Small Print:

  • The Reopening Task Force meets regularly to reassess the current COVID 19 trends in our community. All programming in our school and in the synagogue is guided by the recommendations of the doctors, lawyers and lay people on this committee. We know that there is a rise in virus levels. If at any time we feel it is necessary to alter our methods of instruction we will let you know. In the meantime, we continue to wear masks at all times, socially distance in the classrooms, and use sanitizer frequently. We are enjoying seeing the smiling faces of the children that are joining us on Sunday morning both in person and virtually.


Shabbat Shalom,

Linda Zimmerman

Director of Lifelong Learning
