BETH DAVID SYNAGOGUE IS OPEN FOR IN-PERSON SERVICES
We at Beth David will continue to act with caution, and we urge you to act carefully to avoid infection. We no longer require the wearing of face masks but everyone should feel free to wear a mask. Social distancing is highly recommended and encouraged.
USE OF THE MIKVAH: The use of the Beth David mikvah for women, men and the immersion of newly bought utensils is allowed for all who are fully vaccinated. 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.
Saba Wiesner, Beth David Synagogue’s president, has announced what the Beth David Executive Board called “a unique opportunity” for a family or individual who is willing to relocate to Broome County and become a resident. Thanks to a generous donor, a family or individuals who move to the Binghamton area will receive a monthly subsidy of up to $500 per month per year. This $500 can be applied to a rent or mortgage payment. The subsidy will be provided for a maximum of three years. In return, the family or individual will be requested to become an active member of the Beth David Synagogue community. To be an active member, a male member, who is above bar mitzvah age, is asked to attend Shabbat services two or more times a month. Female members are asked to be involved in the Beth David Sisterhood.
Those wishing to obtain further information should contact Beth David Synagogue by sending a letter to the synagogue at 39 Riverside Dr., Binghamton, NY 13905, e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 607-722-1793.
