How We Are Handling COVID19

Thank you for your patience as we all work together to navigate the current Coronavirus pandemic and the changes it brings to our lives. This page will be regularly updated as we get more information!
 
Our facilities will be closed until further notice, but you can still reach the Administrative Assistant Mon.-Fri., 10am-3pm at info@dortikvah.org.
Though in-person events have had to be canceled, and the doors to the shul are closed, we encourage everyone to take advantage of classes and meetings online, and partake in regular prayer services at home.
 
View this letter from our community's Rabbis for more information on current guidelines.
 

Services

> Though we will not be meeting at the Shul for prayer, it is preferable to partake in prayer services as a community, even apart. Therefore, times will remain listed on the calendar and in the newsletters.
 
>In lieu of Minyans at the synagogue, Rabbi Davies will be sending learning material through the Minyan What's App Group for a dose of Torah (and a reminder to pray).
 
> Fridays at 5:30pm, Rabbi Davies will host Pre-Shabbat programming through Zoom.
 
> Saturdays at 8:30pm, Rabbi Davies will host Post-Shabbat programming through Zoom.

Siddur & Chumash Loan Program

Siddurim and chumashim will be available for loan at the Shul on Fridays, from 10am-3pm. Please contact Rebecca at info@dortikvah.org beforehand. Sanitary precautions will be taken.
 

Help Out

To volunteer to assist those who need help with grocery pickup and other errands, contact Ora at oradavies@gmail.com.
We are also collecting funds for Maot Chittim (Passover Charity) - you can donate here through the website. Please make sure to note that your donation is for this purpose.

Pesach

This year we will be doing a lot of things for the first time. Our people are good at this. We’ve had to adjust ourselves to new situations many times in our history. Even when our Shuls cannot be a physical gathering place for us, they can still function profoundly as centers of tradition and kindness as we find ways to adjust to our new circumstances. We will emerge from this stronger and better, and it will happen sooner if we all follow safety protocols. Right now, safety is our most important focus.
 
See the full letter from Rabbi Davies for detailed instructions.
Guests
 
> No one here in Charleston should host any guests from out of town for Passover or other family celebrations. Everyone must plan to celebrate Passover in their current locations.
 
> Guests who are scheduled to come to Charleston must be told immediately that they may not enter our community.
 
> Family members who arrived here from out of town already must be quarantined for 14 days.
 
> You should not leave for any other community for Passover, family celebrations or any other reason.
 
> One should not invite guests locally for Shabbat and Holiday meals, including the Seder. One should not accept invitations for such hospitality either.

Preparations
 
> If you would like the OU Passover Guide delivered to your home, please contact info@dortikvah.org. You can also view the Guide virtually at oukosher.org/passover/passover-guide.
 
Dining In Inc. has extended their Passover order deadline to March 27th to accommodate changing Seder/Passover plans. 
You can also email marcieschallah@gmail.com or call 843-763-8160 for delivery.
 
> Sell your Chametz before Pesach! Be sure to sign this form and get it back to Rabbi Davies by Erev Pesach, Wednesday, April 8th at 9:00am. The best way is to print it, fill it out, take a picture, and email it to rabbi@dortikvah.org.
 
> Families should not clean for Passover until a few days before the holiday, and then clean enough so that there is no chametz in front of us that we may inadvertently eat. The nullification of chametz that we make on Erev Pesach will qualify for all of the deep cleaning we usually do.
