Israel Center of Conservative Judaism (ICCJ) is an egalitarian synagogue, offering a full range of outstanding religious, educational, cultural, social, and recreational activities to the Jewish community of Northeastern Queens.
Out of an abundance of caution, the ICCJ Officers have voted to suspend future In-Person Shabbat services until the current upsurge of Covid-19 cases is brought under control.
For the immediate future, all religious services will be conducted virtually via Zoom.
As you all undoubtedly know by now, the area encompassing the synagogue and its adjoining neighborhoods make up some of the “hot spots” where Covid cases are currently spiking, and thus subject to new partial lockdown regulations imposed by New York State. Although synagogues and other houses of worship are not being prohibited from conducting In-Person services under these regulations, our executive committee thought it prudent to take action now before the health crisis worsens further.
For the moment, the ICCJ synagogue office will remain open, although its hours of operation may fluctuate. If you need to see Helena or Mady in person, please be sure to make an appointment in advance by calling: 718-591-5353 x 2 or 3 or emailing: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
No doubt, all this is unsettling, but we are adopting these measures because the health and welfare of the congregation is our primary concern.
If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact the synagogue office or one of us directly.
