Important Announcement from Our Rabbi
BETH DAVID SYNAGOGUE WILL BE OPEN FOR IN-PERSON SERVICES THIS SHABBAT MAY 1!!
Infection rates in Broome County and the number of active cases has been decreasing. This, combined with the increase in fully vaccinated people, allows us to make the decision to re-open the shul for in-person Shabbat morning services beginning the Shabbat, May 1, 2021. It is our hope and prayer that this is the beginning of returning to normal for our shul.
The reopening will begin with the same COVID precaution measures that we had in effect before closing after Yom Kippur. Facemasks and socially distanced seating is required by all attendees, irrespective of your vaccination status. We will evaluate the situation weekly and will probably slowly returning to normal over the coming weeks. These changes will be announced in shul.
I encourage and request that you consider returning to shul. It has been way too long that we have not had communal prayers and it is important that we get a minyan. It is incumbent upon us to thank God as a community for allowing us to be able to join together in prayer and for enabling us to participate in our beloved and beautiful synagogue. Let us join together in gratitude for all the good that God has given us.
I hope to see you all in shul this Shabbat at 9:30 am!
The Tuesday night Talmud class will be held Tuesdays at 7:30 pm via Zoom. For information please contact the Rabbi.
The Beth David Mikvah will remain open. 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.
We pray that God, the faithful healer, heal all those who are ill and that we be protected from any further harm.

We are looking forward to resuming our Beth David Shabbat Luncheon Speaker Series as the Corona virus pandemic is diminishing.

You are also invited to join us earlier upstairs for services that start at 9:45am.
