The President's Corner: COVID Update

Fellow Congregants:

With Friday's decision by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the CDC's current rating that there is a medium COVID risk in Montgomery County, masks are now optional for indoor activities at CBSW, including services, Religious School, and social gatherings. We are pleased to have reached this point in the pandemic, and hope the situation only gets better. 

We are excited to tell you that we are planning more in-person activities to celebrate our inclusive community at the local synagogue we call home. 

  • Join us this Friday, March 4, for services. At 6:15 pm, the Tot Shabbat service will feature the kindergarten class leading the Sh'ma, and at 7:30 pm, the Shabbat service will be led by our 6th-grade class. We will continue our great tradition of wonderful social Onegs, with home-baked Challah and light refreshments, following the 7:30 pm service. 
  • Our Religious School students will celebrate Purim this Sunday, March 6, with hamantaschen, a reading of the Megillah story, groggers, and lots of fun activities.
  • On March 9, stop by the Havurat Hashim’s Purim Cafe in the Moadon room in the Social Hall from 5:30-7:00 pm for hamantaschen, wine & coffee.
  • Save April 16 on your calendar to celebrate the Second Night of Passover in our Social Hall with Rabbi Goldberg and your extended CBSW family.  

We will continue to monitor the CDC website and reinstate mask requirements if the CDC risk rating rises. In the meantime, we urge you to be safe, and if you want to wear a mask in our buildings, we will continue to have them available. We request that everyone respect each other's decisions on social distancing, and please stay home if you feel ill. More information on our COVID Health & Safety Protocols can be found on our website.  

Thank you for being a CBSW member; we look forward to seeing you soon.
