Holiday Hours Reminder: The JCCSF Fitness Center will be open 5:30 am – 6:00 pm on Tuesday, October 4 for Yom Kippur Eve and closed all day on Wednesday, October 5 for Yom Kippur.

Today. Tomorrow. Together.

We all need to do our part to help maintain the health and well-being of our friends, family, JCCSF staff, classmates and entire community. We know this in Jewish tradition as the value of loving kindness, Hesed. It means committing our heart, minds and actions to the well-being of other people. Now, more than ever, we recognize how our choices can impact our community.

I am participating in the JCCSF Community Pledge to show our community that I care. The members of my household and I will:


  • Wear a mask when outside our household as required by the SFDPH.
  • Maintain at least 6 feet of social distance when we are not inside our household.
  • Practice frequent hand washing for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer, especially when returning from outside, after using the restroom and before or after meals.
  • Get a flu shot this season for those who are able to do so.
  • Gather safely by following SFDPH Guidelines

The safest gathering is one that is:

  • Outdoors, with face coverings and 6-foot or more distance
  • Short (limited to 2 hours)
  • Small (no more than 3 stable households)
  • Stable (not participating in multiple gatherings with different households)

Remember: serve shared food safely and avoid singing, chanting and shouting. If you cannot avoid these activities, keep face coverings on, volume low, and at least a 6-foot distance from others.


  • Monitor for symptoms like fever (100.4 degrees), cough, sore throat, loss of taste or smell or difficulty breathing.
  • Stay home when not feeling well, contact a medical provider for any symptoms that are severe or concerning, and notify a JCCSF staff person.
  • Review, understand and adhere to all JCCSF health and safety policies and response measures, based on SFDPH guidelines.
  • Immediately notify the JCCSF and participate as required in SFDPH contact tracing if a member of my household test positive for COVID-19.
  • Follow all SFDPH policies to isolate or quarantine if a family member is exposed, suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19.
  • Work with SFDPH to support testing strategies to limit spread of COVID-19. This may include testing for staff or children, with parental consent.


  • Review and follow SFDPH Travel Advisory, dated February 23, 2021.
  • Strongly consider staying home, which is the best way to protect myself and others from COVID-19.
  • If we must travel outside California, we will quarantine for 10 days after return or take a COVID-19 test, and if negative can return to the JCCSF.
  • If we must travel outside the Bay Area but remain in California, we will quarantine for 10 days after return if activities while traveling put us at higher risk of getting COVID-19. These higher risk activities include:
    • Spending time within 6 feet of people you do not normally live with, while you or anyone around you was not wearing a face mask – especially if you were indoors.
    • Traveling on planes, buses, trains, public transportation, or other shared vehicles, if face masks were not always worn by both you and the other people in the vehicle.


  • Keep the JCCSF informed of any positive exposure or close contact to a positive exposure of anyone in our household.
  • Communicate as soon as possible and provide regular updates. Note: After the initial report, the SFDPH does not provide regular updates to us, so we ask that you please keep us updated.


I will show kindness, compassion and respect for members within our community.
