A committee has been working with clergy, staff, and the Board of Trustees to complete policies and procedures for B’nai Mitzvah; for access to NVHC for those who plan to work in the building for a period of time longer than 10 minutes; and a COVID questionnaire for attendees to in-person events on-site. Details can be accessed here:

We also ask that members remain mindful of the precautions outlined by local, state, and federal agencies with respect to COVID-19 when they participate in activities that are related to NVHC. Please wear a mask, maintain social distancing, and avoid in-person activity if you are ill, or believe you may be ill as the result of exposure to COVID-19.

Thank you for your efforts to maintain important elements of community during this otherwise tumultuous period.
