If you experiencing any flu symptoms or are not feeling well, please stay home. We encourage all those who are elderly or have underlying medical conditions to please consider the risks very carefully before you come to Shul or any public space, even with the above precautions. Please recognize that the danger of the virus has not passed and leaving your home contains risk.

All of the above conditions will be subject to frequent review and modifications as the COVID-19 situation improves.

We are grateful that we are able to reopen and look forward to the time when we can resume all programs and activities without the above precautions. Until then, we ask you for your understanding and cooperation in ensuring that our families and community remain safe and healthy. 

With our blessings for a healthy for a Good Shabbos to all and our heartfelt wishes for a time when all sickness will be removed from our world with the coming of Moshiach speedily in our time.

Sincerely,

Mendy & Batya Rosenblum
