We believe it is best to continue our current guidelines as updated below.


CSFA’s COVID-19 policy is as follows:


  •  If you test positive for Covid or are living with or are in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid, please do not attend services or synagogue activities for a period that includes at least one Shabbat.  Please stay home the required Shabbat and be tested with negative results before you return to the synagogue.


  • All CSFA members, visitors, and program attendees are required to be fully vaccinated, including with boosters if eligible.


  •  Masks are required for all indoor services and programming.


We recognize that many of us are feeling enormous fatigue around masking, while for others continued masking creates a stronger feeling of safety. We feel compelled to protect one another by maintaining our policy in this way, as we begin to navigate this next wave of COVID-19.


Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

A CLASS ON THE BOOK OF PSALMS



THE BOOK OF PSALMS

with

Rabbi Samuel Rosenberg


The book of Psalms is one of the most popular books in the Bible.

Chapters of it appear every day, several times a day in

Jewish prayers.

Jews of all generations recited Psalms as a way of expressing their prayers before God.

In the coming classes, while reading selected chapters from it, we will examine the Psalms from a literary point of view, learn about the different interpretations given to it over the generations and examine its influence and importance on the Jews throughout history.



EVERY TUESDAY AFTERNOON AT 2:00 PM


NEXT SESSION IS SCHEDULED FOR

TODAY, TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 13, 2022
