Temple Sinai Phased Reopening Plan

We appreciate your patience over the last few weeks as guidelines have been changing. Please note that the Reopening Plan is dependent upon information about vaccination rates, COVID-19 variants, and changes in infection rates as Vermont reopens, as well as guidance from the CDC and state and local government, and is subject to change.

We are looking forward to seeing you back in person when you are comfortable and able to do so.

Current Book – The Last Jews of Kerala: The Two Thousand Year History of India’s Forgotten Jewish Community – Edna Fernandes

It is the story of the twilight days of a people whose community will, within the next generation, cease to exist. Yet it is also a rich tale of weddings and funerals, of loyalty to family and fierce individualism, of desperation and hope.
