As synagogues, schools and cultural institutions close around the globe, we are thinking of you and praying for our collective health. Although we are practicing “social distancing,” we are keenly aware of how inter-connected we truly are.
Needless to say, the students at Keren Or are in the highest risk category for contracting Covid-19 and experiencing serious complications. It came as no surprise, therefore, that the government of Israel ordered the closure of all special education facilities. Prior to the closure, our staff maintained the highest levels of hygiene, while not compromising the level of care that they provided to our students. Thankfully, there have been no cases of Corona diagnosed among our students or staff. Although Keren Or’s school building and pool have been closed to students, our staff refuses to abandon our families in their hour of need.
As our school remains closed, we’ll be sending updates to show how our kiddos are doing and highlight all the ways we continue to work with our Keren Or families, despite these uncertain times.
