What will happen in the event of another outbreak or the threat of a new variant?

The safety of our congregants is our top priority. We have been and will continue to work with our COVID19 task force, as well as following the guidelines put forth by the CDC. Should there be any change that makes it less safe to be together, we will adjust our plans accordingly and communicate them to our B’nai Aviv family.
