Shavuos Torah from the Rav (dedicated by: * David & Nina Bernstein)



Video update 18 March 2020

Covid-19 Virus Policy as of 15 March

Dearest Friends,
It is with an extremely heavy heart that we must announce that, after new developments over the past 24 hours, including new health advisories from infectious disease experts and agencies in both Canada and the US, as well as new psakim from a number of roshei yeshiva, we find ourselves forced to close the shul entirely. Effective immediately, the BAYT has closed its doors for an indefinite period of time. With this drastic action, we are responsibly protecting the lives of our members and neighbors, especially the most vulnerable within society.
Shiurim will continue via video hookup, as per our last email.
If you have your Tallis and Tefillin or other possessions locked in the building, please contact the office to make an appointment to retrieve your items.
The Mikvah will remain open for those who are healthy, asymptomatic, and who have not been asked to self-quarantine nor have been in contact with those with the virus.
As we’ve mentioned before, now is the time to redouble our efforts in Torah and Tefillah, but instead of doing it from our communal sacred home, the BAYT, we must now work from our individual homes. During your private davening, please focus on at least one paragraph of prayer and say it with greater kavanah.
Our rabbinic staff and our office are still at work, and we are at your service. As always, our phones and emails are open to you and we will endeavor to be as responsive as possible.
If you are a chiyuv to recite kaddish, please instead recite 3 paragraphs of Tehillim (we recommend 20, 121, and 130, but all Tehillim are fine), and learn 3 Mishnayos daily to create an Aliyah for the neshama in lieu of kaddish.
We will keep you updated regularly to notify you of any new developments. We stress that the purpose of shutting down the shul is to create the appropriate social distancing that our governments are asking of us. This means that we are all responsible to create physical distance in ALL public settings, not just religious ones. Please follow the guidelines that are recommended by the Canadian government, here: Visit the site regularly to check for updates.
May Hashem watch over our entire community and bring healing and comfort to all.
Zac Kaye, President           Rabbi Daniel Korobkin          Morris Maron, Exec. Direct
