Temple Isaiah Covid-19 Protocols

Update: March 8, 2022
After March 12th in alignment with changes by Los Angeles County Health Department for schools, masks will be optional but highly recommended throughout the Temple Isaiah campus. We are still requiring proof of vaccine for anyone 12 years and older to enter our facilities.
People can continue to choose to wear masks around others whether it’s required or not for added protection. People should respect others' choices around their health. Masks help stop the spread of the virus. They protect individuals, the medically vulnerable, and those unable to get vaccinated, like young children. They are the safest choice in indoor public settings and in crowded or poorly ventilated spaces.
As we have all learned, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic remains fluid and can change our lives and plans on a daily basis. What is true today may be outmoded or superseded by new information tomorrow. We must remain flexible and ready to pivot. Temple Isaiah continues to work closely with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, following their guidelines and ensuring that the safety of students and staff is always our first priority.
Update: January 7, 2022
As all of you know, the Omicron surge has moved quickly through our community causing Temple Isaiah staff to have to make very hard decisions to keep everyone safe. They are as follows:
  1. Friday night Shabbat services will be virtual-only for a minimum of two weeks, January 7th and 14th.  You can watch our livestream of services on Vimeo, Facebook, or our website.
  2. Preschool remains in session with child and staff testing throughout the week.
  3. K12 is delaying its Sunday return to January 23; Tuesday’s teen program will take place virtually. Continue to read all communications from our schools to stay up to date with our schedule, practices, and policies.
  4. We will continue to hold lifecycle events in person including B’nai Mitzvah services. As always, online options will be available.
  5. Because we are in an ever-changing situation, if you have an upcoming scheduled B’nai Mitzvah please stay in close contact with Julie Moldo and your assigned clergy to discuss your event. We want to ensure that we are meeting your individualized needs to both celebrate your student while keeping everyone safe.
  6. Committee meetings, Board meetings, and any in-person scheduled events will be conducted virtually.
We are grateful that we have the technology to remain connected throughout this current surge. Please reach out with any questions, concerns, advice or even if you just want to talk.
We know this is an ever-changing situation and we will continue to monitor and assess weekly. Check the website for updates regarding Temple activities. It is our goal to ensure our members, staff and clergy remain safe and healthy during this current surge.
