COVID-19 Update

One of the highest Jewish values is the preservation of life. In order to contribute to the social distancing necessary to stanch this pandemic, our synagogue is closing itself for all services and programming from March 11, for at least the next two weeks.

As this is an evolving situation, we recognize the need to provide regular updates. Please watch for emails from us.

Please know that we don't (yet) have a known case of exposure here at BI. We are going beyond what the requirements seem to be. This is not from a place of panic, but from a place of caution, and consideration of what our values really are. We have a duty to act our best to prevent spread.  Feel free to reach out to the Rabbi or the office if you would like a call, text, videochat, or email. We here for you to talk. Early next week, we will send out learning and online gathering opportunities.

In addition, if you are diagnosed with COVID-19, please inform Rabbi Fellman, Rabbi@bethisraelworc.org, so that we know and can support you, and take measures to protect others with whom you may have come into contact. If you are not feeling well, let us know.  If you are feeling isolated, please reach out.

Welcome to Congregation Beth Israel

We like to say that Beth Israel feels like family. And we mean it. This is a religious community that cares ⎯ if you have a simcha to share, if you're sick, if you experience a loss, if you're new to Worcester and looking for a place to find fellow Jews, if you just need to talk. We come from different backgrounds, levels of religious observance and walks of life, but we're bound together by our shared commitment to Conservative Judaism and each other. Please take a look around our website to learn more . . .
