Covid-19 Health and Safety

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email and we will respond as best and as quickly as possible.

The Edlavitch DCJCC is committed to the health and safety of our community above all else.


As of March 30, 2023:

  • The EDCJCC will no longer require visitors entering the building to show proof of vaccination.
  • Theater J & JxJ will continue to require patrons to wear masks at theater, film, and music events.
  • Staff are no longer required to be vaccinated and new staff do not need to show proof of vaccination.


Effective March 21, 2022, masking will be optional within the EDCJCC, except for in Goldman Theater and Cafritz Hall, as well as in any other program deemed necessary by the seating layout.

Our vaccination and mask policies will be updated based on CDC guidance, as well as guidance from local and state governmental health authorities. Updates or adjustments to these policies will be communicated on our website and in emails to our community. These policies will be implemented and enforced in full compliance with all applicable laws requiring reasonable accommodations of disabilities and religious beliefs.


There is a deeply held Jewish value of pikuach nefesh, which holds that the protection of human life is the highest priority above all other laws, requirements, or freedoms. Thank you for joining the EDCJCC in an effort to combat COVID-19 and to keep our community safe.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our community, and we want you to feel confident that we are doing this with your safety as our top priority.
