April 2021 Update

As the Covid Committee anxiously anticipates Sonoma County moving into the orange tier, we are excited to be knee-deep in reopening plans. We are closely monitoring local and state guidelines and consulting with local physicians as we develop this plan.

Our Rabbis and Board of Directors are concerned about our health and safety and we plan to reopen when it is safe for all of our congregants. Stay tuned in your CST Connect email for more details.

February 2021 Update

The CST Covid re-entry team is closely monitoring local and state guidelines and consulting with local physicians as we develop our reopening plan. Given the current metrics in Sonoma County, we continue to focus on the more restrictive levels of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy purple and red color tiers, outlined in the table below. 

In summary, we will remain closed and will continue with online services and programs. Our Rabbis and Board of Directors are concerned about our health and safety and we plan to reopen when it is safe for all of our congregants.

California reopening guidelines for places of worship from the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, based on the COVID-19 colored risk level system, and Congregation Shomrei Torah’s current reopening plan.

December 2020 Update

Since we expect our home on the hill to remain closed through the winter season, the recently created CST Covid re-entry team will spend this time preparing, beginning with evaluating when and how to reopen as safely as possible. Our rabbis and board members are concerned about our health and safety; our goal is to reopen when it is safe for all of our congregants, from the most hardy to our most vulnerable.

Throughout history, Jews have faced and overcome adversity; with seasons of damaging wildfires, Sonoma County Jews have certainly had our share. During these dark times, we have come together to pray, comfort, support, and heal. At the beginning of the pandemic, Rabbi George and Rabbi Stephanie seamlessly transitioned to an online platform to continue to provide comfort, care and connection to our members. With the assistance of our dedicated staff and volunteers, our rabbis have been working to ensure that our community continues to thrive during these challenging times.

COVID-19 is yet another opportunity for our community to support each other, albeit this time from afar and often via Zoom. If you have not already done so, we urge you to explore all of the enriching online opportunities available for CST members to pray, learn and gather together.

The CST Covid re-entry team — Co-Presidents, Paul Berlant and Ann DuBay, Dave Fichera, Erica Magers, Jillian Navarro, and Rabbi Stephanie Kramer — will keep you informed about our progress in sculpting our reopening plan based on local and state guidelines. In the meantime, remember that we are a strong and loving community and will continue to learn, pray, and flourish during this difficult moment in history.
