Postponed Harvey Atkin Purim Comedy Competition
March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Dear Temple Family,
Every year, we look forward to connecting with our community at Purim and sharing an evening of laughter and joy together. Unfortunately, a positive case of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) has been confirmed in the Jewish community (the sixteenth in Toronto) and a member from our Temple family came into contact with this recently diagnosed person. Our member is not experiencing any symptoms but is nevertheless in self-quarantine as a precautionary measure. At this time, Toronto public health is not concerned.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to postpone the Harvey Atkin Purim Comedy Competition and Megillah reading tonight, Monday, March 9. Our goal is to protect the health and safety of our Temple family and the greater community. Those who have paid to attend the event will be contacted in the next 48 hours.
We are in ongoing communication with Toronto Public Health and UJA Federation of Greater Toronto and will provide updates as soon as possible. If you have additional concerns regarding COVID-19, please contact Toronto Public Health at 416.338.7600, Monday to Friday from 8.30 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. and on weekends from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m., or visit their website at toronto.ca/coronavirus.
We will let you know of any new developments. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
Shari Zuckerman, Temple Sinai President
Rabbi Michael Dolgin
