Important Update Regarding Coronavirus

We have been in touch with other communities in the tri state area and local health officials. It is clear that we need to do our best to slow the spread of the disease. Although in CT the number of cases is low, it is increasing. There is significant concern about availability of resources to treat patients and slowing the spread is vital. The only way to do this is through social distancing and community closures. It can save lives.  

We have therefore made the difficult decision to close the synagogue for all minyanim including Shabbat, classes and gatherings beginning Friday, March 13th. There should be no house minyanim and people should daven individually. Further, people should limit gatherings for Shabbat meals. As adults, we need to set an example for our children and limit social interaction.  

The Minnie Manger Marcia Lieberman Mikvah will remain open. Women under mandatory quarantine or who are experiencing symptoms of illness may not use the mikvah. 

The Men's Mikvah will be closed.

It is with a heavy heart that we are suspending these activities. We do this only because of the compelling nature of the circumstances and in concert with CDC recommendations. These measures are a reflection of our overarching commitment to the sanctity of all human life and we pray the measures are temporary.  

Please take a few minutes each day to intensify your prayers for a full and speedy recovery for all who are ill with COVID-19. God willing, our community will grow stronger during these challenging times and we will experience good news and healing in the days ahead.
