Dear friends,

We continue to plan for the re-opening of our campus. With the announcement by Governor Newsom of the June 15 re-opening of California, we would like to share some details of our planning and current status.

  • We are targeting July 1 to re-open broadly for Shabbat worship and programming, as well as other events and administrative operations.
  • We will continue to hold Shabbat, holiday worship services and other programs virtually, providing high-quality virtual experiences through live streaming and/or Zoom access in addition to any in person access. This will continue even after we open.
  • During the months of May and June, we will test some procedures and hold some small group events by invitation only. We plan to open for some in-person lifecycle events, such as B’nei Mitzvah and funerals. These will be held in the Outdoor Chapel and limited to a small group of invited guests of the family holding the lifecycle event. These services will continue to be available through Zoom and live streaming to provide access to the community who cannot attend in person.
  • We are beginning to plan for High Holy Days and will share plans as they are available. It is our goal to give everyone the opportunity to participate in person in some capacity as well as through a high quality virtual experience.

What can you do? Please be patient as we continue our planning. Until July 1, please do not come to campus unless you have a specific invitation. Even if our gate is open, we are not quite ready for visitors yet. Thank you for understanding.

More information will follow on how to register to attend Shabbat services once they resume in the Outdoor Chapel this summer.

We all look forward to the day when we can gather as a community more safely in person. If you have specific questions, please contact us at reopening@betham.org.

L'shalom,

Andy Cheng, President
