We hope that you and your families are staying safe and healthy. Listed below are some updates and news of how we plan to open the Fall 2022 Semester. We are committed to following the guidelines of SIU, the State of Illinois and the CDC.


Shabbos is a mainstay of keeping our community together. Shabbos dinners will be taking place following the latest health guidelines.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or are awaiting test results, please request a Shabbos-to-go kit. Otherwise you're more than welcome to join our Shabbos table.
