Update from the Coronavirus Task Force 

Westchester's level of community Covid transmission has changed to High. This is a result of a high number of cases and hospitalizations. As a result we are resuming several Covid safety measures. These measures will remain in place as long as the CDC classifies community spread here as High, which corresponds with red on their color scale. 

While we are at this level:

  • Masks are required indoors.
  • Eating is outdoors-only.
  • The sanctuary capacity is limited to 75 people.

We will assess the situation on a week-by-week basis. The CDC releases revised spread levels on Thursdays. Please look to your email to keep informed. The full list of Covid protocols can be found here.

Save the date:  Woodlands' Spring Blood Drive

Sunday, June 26

For those who were planning on a March date, apologies but we ran into some scheduling snafus. Since you can donate every 8 weeks, if you’d like to give now you can still do so at the Elmsford Blood Center and still have time to give at the June drive as well. If you give at Elmsford, Woodlands can get credit for the donation. Just use Group Number 69257. Thanks for saving a life.

Announcing WCT's First Executive Director!

This past fall, a search committee was formed to complete the work of a task force formed in 2018 to review the feasibility of an Executive Director at Woodlands. Following board approval of the job description, the search committee got down to work, and at the February board meeting announced that our own member, Haya Luftig, had accepted our offer to become WCT's first Executive Director.

Haya was on the Board of Trustees, and she submitted her resignation from the board, effective Feb 17th.

We are excited to welcome Haya to our professional staff, as we take this next step in the evolution of the Woodlands Way. Click here for more about Haya.

Meet Jenna Mark, Woodlands' New Cantor

Beshert. Meant to be. Though that might not be the exact word that both the committee that chose Jenna Mark to be our next cantor and Jenna Mark herself would use when describing the connection they see between Jenna and Woodlands, it’s certainly what’s implied.
