This page is being updated regularly and contains information about the anticipated effects of COVID-19.
The rapid progression of COVID-19 and its recent upgrade to pandemic has required everyone in our community to react and respond to new information and restrictions every day. The recommended practice of social distancing is a particularly challenging requirement during these uncertain and chaotic times when so many of us turn to our Jewish communities for comfort, care, and connection.
Although we are daunted by the enormity of the threat of COVID-19, we also have deep confidence in the ability of our community to face it. Here are some initial updates, with more to follow in the coming days.
The Federation’s operations and those of our partner agencies have shifted to best protect our employees and the community.
During this unprecedented pandemic, our Jewish community is working together and taking care of one another. Our community organizations remain operational to provide assistance during this time
