Welcomes You to Spring 2022
We hope everyone had a relaxing and rejuvenating winter break!
As we come back for the spring semester, we want to update everyone on our COVID-19 mitigation strategies. We need to work together to ensure, especially these first few weeks, that we are following the University’s guidelines and keeping everyone safe in our building and in the community.
Our Jewish values teach us that there is nothing more sacred than the value of human life, and we are committed to maintaining a healthy and safe space for our extended Hillel family. While our primary focus remains our student population, we also serve the greater Purdue and West Lafayette/Lafayette community.
We are going to be asking everyone entering our building to comply with the following requests:
We will be requiring RSVPs at least 24-hours in advance for in-person food-based events, including Sunday Funday dinners, Bagel Break, and Shabbat dinners, to ensure we have appropriate seating prepared.
Per our agreement with the University regarding contact tracing, every guest to the building is required to sign in each time they enter the building, leave either a phone number or email address, and list the event they are attending.
Masks are to be worn while inside of the building and around others - if you do not have a mask with you when you arrive to Hillel, one will be provided for you - masks may be removed while you are seated at a table and eating or drinking.
We ask everyone to assess their personal comfort level when choosing where to sit while eating - we will have tables set up throughout the building, creating more spaces with greater distancing.
We will happily offer grab-and-go meals for Bagel Break, Shabbat dinner, Sunday Funday dinner, and Chicken Soup delivery, simply by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
COVID-19 is not the only transmissible illness, so we ask that if you have a cold and/or are not feeling well, that you not enter the building and wait until you have recovered to prevent others from getting sick.
We will continue to have our regular events and the building will be open during the week for studying, grabbing coffee, and meeting with friends. We all simply need to be wearing our masks while around others and not entering the building if not feeling well. We appreciate everyone working together to continue to make Purdue Hillel a warm and welcoming place where our extended community feels safe and comfortable.
We will continue to update our policies in accordance with the Protect Purdue Plan.
