Dear Congregants,

You may have heard that the guardian  (who was not on our campus) of one of the JCC Taglit participants tested positive for COVID-19 this week. Taglit is a day program for young adults with disabilities and it is considered part of emergency care during the COVID-19 pandemic. With Board approval, we rented our classrooms to JCC for their Taglit program this summer (while our campus is otherwise closed). No one from Or Chadash is at risk as a result of this situation. The letter that JCC sent to their members is below.  It explains the situation in detail and describes their CDC-compliant, pre-planned responses.

Please contact either Todd Rockoff ( me ( if you have questions.
