Important Announcement from Our Rabbi



Even the Governor has announced the lifting of the indoors mask mandate and the number of COVID cases in Broome County continues to fall, we at Beth David will not change our policy just yet.  We would like to see that this better situation continues to be sustained for more than a short period of time. We look forward to making face masks optional in another few weeks as the cases in Broome County have been declining.  We at Beth David will continue to act with caution, and we urge you to act carefully to avoid infection.  We require the wearing of face masks irrespective of vaccination status.  Social distancing is highly recommended and encouraged.

USE OF THE MIKVAH:  Effective immediately the use of the Beth David mikvah for women, men and the immersion of newly bought utensils will be allowed for all who are fully vaccinated, as defined above.  Permitted use includes preparation for immersion, and this applies to out of town guests, as well.  Those who have not been fully vaccinated must continue observing the restrictions that have been in place. Women under quarantine or ordered to be placed in isolation or who are experiencing symptoms of acute infectious illness (e.g., cold, flu, stomach bug) may not use the Mikvah.

SHABBAT KIDDUSH AFTER SERVICES: We hope to resume this enjoyable activity on Shabbat, March 12.

Shabbat Luncheon Series

We have restarted our Beth David Shabbat Kiddush after services.

The Luncheon Speaker Series will restart once the Corona virus pandemic is at a level low enough for all of us to be safe – probably in June. Beth David Luncheon Speaker Series takes place the second Shabbat of the month after morning services and is open to the community. The date of the next Kiddush respectively Shabbat Luncheon has not been determined yet. You are also invited to join us upstairs for regular Shabbat services that start at 9:30am. There is no charge for the luncheon, but Beth David welcomes donations to the Luncheon Fund in order to keep the program going;  they can be made in honor of or in memory of someone, or to mark a special occasion. Tax-deductible donations can be sent to Beth David Synagogue, 39 Riverside Drive, Binghamton, NY 13905 Attention:  Luncheon Fund.
