The Shul Coronavirus Update

 

March 20, 2020 Passover Seder

Over the past two weeks the world changed, our community experienced a tremendous encounter that we are all fighting together as a community with faith and act of kindness.

The Shul remains committed in doing everything we can to support our community during this challenging time. Now, more than ever, people are searching for community, purpose and meaning to combat the loneliness and anxiety resulting from their isolation.

 

But we also understand our social responsibility to protect those we care about. We understand that we need to stop in order to keep moving soon. The Shul always opened their doors and welcome anyone looking for a Passover Seders, unfortunately this year will be different; we must be limited to the attendance of 'nuclear families”. We are going back to our roots and we will share Passover with just our closest family.  

 

The Shul Community Passover Seder have been cancelled in response to the CDC’s recommendations regarding large group gatherings and social distancing, especially for individuals over the age of 60, and for those who have compromised immune systems. Our priority is taking all precautionary measures to keep our community safe and healthy.

 

Refunds will be issued to all who have already made reservations.

 

We understand that the Jewish community rely more than ever on institutions like The Shul during this difficult time, and we are here for you and we want to do everything we can to protect and maintain us so that we can be there for our community.

We will be having a series of virtual classes to assist anyone who feels they need help organizing or leading a Seder. Our Rabbis and staff will always be there for you and your family. Please send us an email to info@theshul.org and we will be sure to get back to you.


We want all of you to stay safe and healthy so that next year, we can all celebrate as the official last verse of the Hagadah tells us: “NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM!”

Important Information

 

Unfortunately we have confirmed that the leader of our community, Rabbi Sholom Lipskar has tested positive for the Coronavirus. Symptoms are considered mild, and thank G-D he is doing well under quarantine.

 

In light of this, we have taken the following immediate steps:

We have professionally sanitized our building and temporarily suspended all Shul activities.

We strongly urge all those who have been in close contact with the Rabbi to self quarantine and contact their physicians for more immediate advice.

Also, The Shul is in regular coordination with our local governments and is following all health department protocols.

We will also continue to be in regular communication with our community members about the need to self quarantine and to otherwise keep everyone informed about proper health protocols as we receive them.

 

We wish our Rabbi and everyone the best and pray for the Rabbi’s speedy recovery.
