To continue being responsible to our congregational and greater community, the Temple’s Board of Directors has extended the closure of the building to comply with Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb’s executive order declaring a public health emergency for the state.
When the board initially decided to close the facility on March 13, plans called for remaining closed until at least April 18. The governor has since extended his stay-at-home order until May 5. Achduth Vesholom ’s leadership will monitor recommendations from government and health officials before determining when to re-open the Rifkin Campus.
While we cannot meet in person, some worship, educational, and social programs are meeting through virtual communication methods.
Throughout this unprecedented situation, we will send regular updates through email to our members. Please check the Temple website and our congregational Facebook page for information as we continue to add online offerings during the coming weeks.
We are working in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne to reach out to members of our community to offer our support during this challenging time. Please stay in touch.
