Shul Closure Message Please Read


Dear Friends,

It's with a heavy heart I forward the attached letter from the Rabbinical Council of Bergen County (RCBC). While the attached letter outlines and explains the ramifications and recommendations, the bottom line is, that after 8 AM tomorrow (Friday morning) the shul will be closed until further notice. It goes without saying, everything less important than minyanim should also be cancelled, obviously includes our shul dinner (postponed), playing in the shul's playground, etc. The reasoning, as explained in the letter, is to increase social distancing, to slow the spread of disease so that our hospitals and healthcare providers will not be overwhelmed. While not a unanimous decision, we now cannot undermine their efforts by circumventing the recommendations of both doctors and the RCBC. If you have individual halachot questions, please contact Rabbi Ciment. If you need access to the shul, please contact Valerie Levin. The RCBC will reconvene on Wednesday and revisit the situation.


Rabbi Aharon Ciment
