A Message from Rabbi Finkel

Every Rosh HaShanah, our hearts soar, seeing more than a thousand members of our PBJC family gathered together in Scheinman Hall, and hundreds of others in other services, workshops, and babysitting rooms throughout the building. Why is this year different from all other years? Such an event this year has the potential to be nothing less than a “super-spreader” event. It would be dangerous at best, and our primary concerns as Jews during this difficult period is Peku’ah Nefesh, preservation of life.

 

Therefore, for this year, 5781, will gather only under the safest of circumstances by which most of us have been conducting our lives since March. That means that large indoor gatherings will have to wait for, hopefully, 5782. The vast majority of our services for 5781 will be conducted virtually, using a combination of the “magic” of Zoom and live-streaming, with some services held in person at the Montville Amphitheater and in the PBJC parking lot.
