Dear Beth-El Zedeck family,
As the number of Covid cases has increased dramatically due to the Delta variant, especially among those that are fully vaccinated, we regret to announce that all of our High Holy Day services will be held virtually this year.
We were so looking forward to seeing our congregational family in the Simon Sanctuary and being Back Home Again at Beth-El Zedeck. However, doing so in the midst of the current health crisis would be imprudent.
We make this difficult decision because we care deeply about our congregation and want to usher in a New Year of health and happiness. To do so, we have a responsibility to protect our members and staff as best we can.
We know that this is deeply disappointing for many of you as it is deeply disappointing for us. Let us make the best out of our predicament, showing care and compassion for others and ourselves and gathering together virtually as one spiritual family.
We look forward to welcoming the New Year and worshiping together as a congregational family from the safety and comfort of our homes. All of our services will be available on livestream at bez613.org/watch-live. Contact the office if you would like to borrow a High Holy Day prayerbook.
Please contact the office at (317) 253-3441 or email@example.com if you would like the cost of your seats donated, refunded, or applied as a prepayment on your account. If we don’t hear from you, we will assume that you wish for your seat payment to be a donation to the synagogue.
We wish you joys, health and peace in the New Year. Shanah tovah!
Dennis C. Sasso
