The Temple's Board of Directors has extended the closure of the building to continue being responsible to our congregational and greater community. The board reviewed Gov. Eric Holcomb's Roadmap to Safely Open Indiana and its guidelines for religious organizations.
A re-opening date has not yet been determined. We will continue to monitor the situation and are working on establishing plans for a phased re-opening of the Rifkin Campus. The Temple has been closed since March 13, with the staff working remotely from home and complying with the governor's stay-at-home order.
While we cannot meet in person, worship services and 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 also check for information on on our congregational Facebook page as we continue to add online offerings.
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.
