COVID Protocols
We are following Kehilla’s Public Health Protocols (read them here). In addition, we ask that all attendees take a COVID-19 antigen test within 2 hours before arriving at the retreat site. If you have a positive antigen test or If you are exhibiting ANY symptoms of potential contagious illness, you should stay home (you will be missed!).

Accessibility
Bort Meadow has fully accessible bathrooms and a drop-off point that is located right near the part of the meadow in which we hold activities. We are being loaned accessibility mats which will connect the drop-off point to our picnic tables and gathering space (a length of about 20-30 feet). The Retreat area is otherwise relatively flat, though there are no paved areas beyond the drop-off point. Some wheelchairs and scooters can navigate the meadow terrain. If you have concerns about attending the retreat, we want to hear them. Please email us at elle@kehillasynagogue.org as soon as you can. Our registration form below also has space for requesting accommodations.
