Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

03/11/2020 10:35:49 AM


Rabbi Yannai says, "A person should never stand in a dangerous place."  - Shabbat 32a

As efforts to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 virus continue and additional recommendations are offered, we continue to assess our decisions. Based on updated recommendations, with heavy hearts, we have decided to close the building until further notice.

We are holding daily services using a platform called Zoom, so that anyone who wants to participate can. Through the Zoom platform, congregants can see and speak to each other. Here is the information to log into Zoom:

We now have three links for all of our services via Zoom: 

For Friday evening and Saturday morning services:

Please dial 929.436.2866 or 301.715.8592.

For Saturday evening services:
By computer:
By phone:
Please dial 929.436.2866 or 301.715.8592.
Meeting ID#:

For all other services (Sunday through Friday morning and evening services, and Shabbat services):

By phone:
Please dial 929.436.2866 or 301.715.8592.
Meeting ID#:

Please note:
To avoid the possibility that any of our services will be interrupted by hackers or other interlopers ("Zoombombing"), we instituted a Zoom virtual waiting room and authorized the host to welcome each guest into the meeting. Starting July 3, you will need a password for Friday evening, Saturday morning, and Saturday evening services. We will email the password to congregants; alternatively, you can call the synagogue office at 215.635.6611 to obtain it. Attendees to our services who are not members should call the synagogue office at 215.635.6611. Please don't share the password with others. 

For now, the remainder of our services (Sunday through Friday morning minyan and Sunday through Thursday evening minyan) will not be password-protected. All meetings will still have the "waiting room" feature enabled. You may want to call or log in a few minutes ahead of the start time so that the host has time to welcome each guest.

Don't forget to check the calendar for ongoing events.
