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.

President, Congregation Or Chadash
The Board met via Zoom again in April to receive updates in a variety of areas. The pandemic has rendered our financial situation unpredictable. We have applied for relief under the Paycheck Protection Program, but we have not received any funds yet. Mark Ross is continuing to work to expedite the process.
The transition to online religious and Hebrew School has been quite successful, with a high attendance rate. Rina invited the board to attend the end-of-year assembly on May 3. She is also working with a joint committee to prepare for the new, combined religious school this fall.
