Dear WJC Family,
You’ve probably all heard about Governor Hochul’s recent decision to allow the New York State mask mandate for indoor public settings to expire. This is clearly good news and reflects the very positive trends in infection rates in our State and across the country. Governor Hochul has not yet lifted the mask mandate for schools and childcare facilities but has indicated she may do so after returning from winter break.
Our COVID Task Force and synagogue leadership are currently reviewing these developments in the hopes that we will be able to gradually loosen COVID-related restrictions at WJC. For now, however, we are maintaining our current restrictions in place and ask that you continue to be cautious and abide by our health and safety protocols.
We will be back in touch to let you know of any changes in our protocols going forward.
Thank you for your cooperation and support,
Seth Schafler, President
David Goldstein, Executive Director
