In keeping up with the recent recommendations from the CDC, as well as the Montgomery County Office of Public Health, and in the spirit of Pikuach Nefesh, the Jewish value of safeguarding life, we are updating our Covid safety protocols. These changes do not apply to our preschool community. The preschool must abide by more restrictive procedures given the age of the children.
Beginning Monday, March 14, 2022, masks will no longer be mandated at our indoor events, including services, however anyone who wishes to continue wearing a mask is encouraged to do so. It is also our intent to begin to bring our members and guests safely back into our building for Adult Education, Library, Museum and other programming. We miss the communal benefits of seeing each other in person! Please check eKI on a weekly basis to see if an event you wish to attend is being offered in person and/or by Zoom or by streaming. As the weather gets warmer, we plan to make greater use of our outdoor tented areas.
As we make this transition, it is very important that we remain respectful of everyone’s feelings, including our staff, guests, and clergy, and that we continue to keep social distancing in mind when we interact with one another. We continue to promote handwashing and vaccinations for everyone. Please keep in mind that many of our members are still considered at high risk for the virus due to their age, compromised immune systems, or other pre-existing conditions.
In March of 2020 we searched for a way to keep our community spiritually close even though we were physically apart. Now it is time to return to the comfort of our building, where we will once again be able to celebrate together.
Thank you for your patience, for your membership, and for your overwhelming support during this pandemic.
