Public Health and Safety Statement for Rockdale Temple Students, Madrichim, and Staff
2022-2023 | 5783
 

Public Health as a Jewish Value
Families send their children to religious school, youth group, and Rockdale Temple programs and assume that their children will enjoy themselves, have positive social interactions, learn from the rich Jewish environment, and be safe and healthy. One of our most cherished Jewish values is the imperative for preserving life and maintaining health. We embrace this value specifically by taking preventive measures to protect the public health of our community as a whole.

Routine Vaccination Policy
Any individual who attends as a student, serves as a madrich/a/ol, and/or teaches in our Kehal Kodesh School (whether children or adults) must have up-to-date, age-appropriate vaccines as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). If your child has a medical exemption from vaccinations, please contact Rabbi Binder. Please sign electronically on your online registration form to signify your understanding of this sacred trust.

COVID-19 Update
Given the nature of the ever-evolving health crisis, we are making decisions in consultation with our Rabbis, Health Safety Team, and Religious School Committee to create a meaningful and safe experience.

We are requiring our faculty and staff to be fully vaccinated, and strongly recommending that all children be vaccinated. If you or a member of your household are not feeling well, we ask that you stay home. Our decision to require masking will depend on the local COVID-19 status, in accordance with CDC guidelines, our leadership, and our Jewish values. Any and all are welcome to mask according to their own comfort level.

Our COVID-19 policies will be ongoing assessments and we greatly appreciate your patience and partnership as we work towards creating a safe and inclusive community together. 

If you have any questions or would like to discuss these issues further, please contact Rabbi Binder.
Please note: If you do not agree to the above policy and your child(ren) does not hav a qualifying medical exemption, we are unable to enroll them in religious school.
