Jewish LearningWorks’ Covid-19 Pandemic Statement & Commitment to the Community

As the COVID-19 pandemic surges again with the highly transmissible Omicron variant, Jewish LearningWorks continues to prioritize the safety and well-being of our staff, consultants, strategic partners, patrons, families and everyone in the communities in which we live and work.

To safeguard our health and the most vulnerable among us, we persevere in following CDC and California state guidelines, as well as San Francisco’s mask requirements for our in-person meetings and programs. Besides relying on health authorities for our safety protocols, we are guided by the Jewish values of Pikuach nefesh (preserving all human life above all), Ometz lev (integrity to follow scientific and expert advice with honesty and transparency) and Chesed (empathy and kindness as we respond to this collective challenge).

We will only conduct in-person business and small program gatherings after carefully considering the benefits and risks of the encounter. We ask staff and participants to refrain from attending Jewish LearningWorks’ events unless they are fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, and we require that properly fitting masks be worn at all times.

Thank you for partnering with us on this journey and for helping us keep our in-person experiences as safe as possible.
