Bayit Coronavirus Email #8 - Midday Update: Next two days at the Bayit

03/12/2020 04:29:58 PM


Dear Bayit Family,

As you are likely experiencing, community and government responses to the Covid-19 outbreak are both divergent and changing rapidly. Bayit leadership and our partners across Riverdale at schools, synagogues and the Riverdale-Y continue to speak regularly to work together to make the best decisions for both our individual members and the community at large. Thank you for your patience as we work through our process.

This email is focused on our current logistic plans for the next two days.  An additional update will follow this evening/tonight with volunteer opportunities, tonight's support group information, and more.

1) Weekday Tefillot:  6:45pm Mincha/Maariv tonight and 6:45am and 7:50am Shacharit tomorrow will all be in the Main Sanctuary to allow those who attend to follow social distancing guidelines and stay at least 6 feet apart.  To attend via Zoom, click here

2) Members who are in an at-risk category: We urge any member in an at-risk category - including older adults - to consult with their physician and take appropriate additional steps to protect themselves from infection, erring on the side of not coming to shul.

3) Shabbat Activities: We will not be having Abraham & Sarah's Tent, Youth Groups, Kiddush or Seudah Shlishit this Shabbat. Stay tuned for details about a virtual Melave Malka and other online programming.

4) Tefillot this Shabbat: At this time we have not made a final decision about tefillot over Shabbat. We will let the community know our plan as soon as possible. 

5) Please take home your tallit and tefillin from the Bayit tomorrow morning as we are not sure what the days ahead will bring.

Take good care,

Rav Steven, Rav Ezra, Rabbanit Bracha, Rabba Sara and Rav Avi
Richard Langer, Executive Director
Daniel Feit, President
