Rosh Chodesh Iyar

April 23, 2020

 

Dear Skokie Central Family,

 

We are living in a very difficult and challenging time.  While we all firmly believe that our ultimate protector is HaKodesh Barchu, it is our responsibility to take serious action to protect ourselves, our families, and our community.

 

Therefore, we will be opening up slowly when we receive notice that it is safe to do so, and in a manner that will be safe, for minyanim or any other gatherings.  We are taking this action after consulting with both leading halachic and medical authorities who insist that we must do our part to limit in-person social interaction.  Halachically, we believe that these limits are more important than to daven with a minyan.

This pandemic is an unparalleled crisis in our nation’s history.  How we respond will not only make a difference in the lives of many but will also define our values and faith.  We look towards HaKodesh Barchu to protect us, and we look to each other to do all we can to stop the spread of this terrible disease.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at rabbimichaelgottesman@gmail.com

or 847-757-5631.
