COVID-19 Update as of March 17, 2020

It is with great sadness and reluctance that as of today The Roslyn Synagogue will be closed for all functions.

This includes tefilla b'tzibur, all shiurim and any other activities scheduled for the building. The board made this decision after careful consideration of all factors involved in closing the building.

This decision was made with careful consideration of the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, public health considerations, the health of our community and the response of multiple Orthodox Jewish institutions throughout Nassau County and the metropolitan area. Although we have not yet heard of a confirmed case in our community, we should make every effort to ensure that the first case does not arise in our community or that we inadvertently participate in the spread of the disease.

The building was cleaned yesterday and then disinfected with commercial strength disinfectant used by NYC. Yasher Korach to Yigal for his efforts to accomplish this.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me.

Looking forward to joining with all of you in Shul when this epidemic is over.

Marc Yunis
President of the Roslyn Synagogue
