Please Get Vaccinated Against COVID-19 as Soon as You Can

In support of the Jewish values of protecting life and health, Rabbi Caine, Rabbi Dobrusin, and the Board of Directors of Beth Israel Congregation urge all members who can, to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The available vaccines are safe and effective. Vaccination protects not only you, but also community members who have medical conditions that preclude vaccination and children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated.

Learn more about where to get vaccinated by following this website, run by the Washtenaw County Health Department:

 https://www.washtenaw.org/3337/Where-to-Get-the-COVID-19-Vaccine

If you need assistance making an appointment, or getting to an appointment, please contact BIC’s Director of Engagement and Programming, Amanda Glucklich, at engage@bethisrael-aa.org, and she will connect you with a congregant who can help. There are BIC volunteer drivers who are fully vaccinated and readily available to give you a ride.
