COVID - Shas-a-Thon 5781
As we gear up for Shas-a-Thon 5781 we are well aware of the Covid-19 situation and the threat that comes with it. Although we understand the huge zchus of Torah and the impact it has on so many couples yearning for a child of their own we understand that our heroes - our dedicated Lomdim’s health comes first and foremost and ונשמרתם מאוד לנפשותיכם takes precedence above all.
Although it’s too early for any final decisions, we are discussing our options with medical professionals and they will guide us and help plan this grand event. We are passionate and committed to do whatever it takes to make this event a comfortable and safe place for our Lomdim and a Kiddush Hashem to the world. All necessary options are being considered including pre-testing, antibody testing, social distancing and face coverings. Final plans will be notified as we get closer to the event.
Bez”H, this year's Shas-a-Thon will be taking place at the Kalahari Convention Center in Pennsylvania. The Kalahari boasts over 200,000 square feet of event space giving us the options and capabilities to truly do a safe and healthy event.
May we be makadesh Shem Shomayim and may all the Torah being learned before and at the Shasathon be מגנא ומצלא and may this year's event be a zchus for all couples waiting for a yeshua and to all of klal yisroel.
