To help with New York City's efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus, the Leo Baeck Institute and the Center for Jewish History have decided to temporarily close until further notice. Our top priority is the health and safety of our staff and all the members of the public who come to the Center. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep our community informed of any changes.
All events will be cancelled, postponed, or rescheduled on a digital platform until further notice. Please subscribe to the CJH newsletter to receive regular updates on the program schedule, as well as a number of our digital offerings still available from the Center and our other partner organizations. The reading room, exhibitions, and other facilities in the building will remain closed to the public. Our staff will continue to work remotely and assist researchers during this period.
The decision to close was not taken lightly, and we are diligently monitoring the latest updates from health officials. We will provide any new information as we receive it, so please follow us on social media for the most up-to-date news. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Center soon.
Thank you for your understanding, and we hope that you and your families stay well during this difficult period.
