1027 Re-Opening
Ae’re excited to share a roadmap towards returning to davening as a community in our space at 1027 Pacific. This roadmap has been developed in conjunction with numerous medical professionals in our community, and as always reflects our current understanding of the present situation. We will of course revisit and communicate as the situation evolves, and will continue to monitor guidance from the state, city, and other community organizations. We have also updated our PHS COVID 19 guidance, which can be found on our website (www.phs.nyc)
