*COVID-19 UPDATE 3.16.20 from Rabbi Sender Haber

After much deliberation and consultation, and in light of the latest recommendations, we have made the decision to suspend all minyanim at shul. 
While I respect that others may have more creative alternatives, I encourage individuals to make responsible and fully informed choices.  
Please try to daven at either sunrise or published times so that we can be united in time as we connect to HaShem as a community.   
I want to underscore that the goal here is prudence, not panic.  Please continue to remain calm. 
I also ask that everyone increase their Torah & Prayer to fill the deficit caused by these most recent guidelines. 

Maos Chittim

Jewish Law mandates donation of funds to ensure that our neighbors also have the means to prepare Pesach. Please contribute to our local maos chittim (“wheat money”) fund with a check to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund. Bring it to Rabbi Haber or the office. Thank you to all who have contributed. We also gratefully acknowledge the support of the Orthodox Union in supplementing maos chittim funds of our community.

Also, if you are able to host individuals or families for the sedarim, please contact Rabbi Haber.
