From the Chairman update July 29th, 2020

Dear members and friends of Migwan

On behalf of the entire Migwan board and team, I hope that you and your loved ones are enjoying pleasant summer.

After the summer break, the Migwan community will start again with our regular services, school and other activities throughout the late summer and autumn. Due to the continued restrictions for the Coronavirus, we can only offer a limited selection of cultural events. You can find all the information you need in the current newsletter and in the online calendar .

The binding official prerequisite for all public activities on the premises continues to be strict compliance with the «protection concept». Our umbrella organization PLJS (Platform of the Liberal Jews of Switzerland) is continuously developing this together with the partner organization SIG (Swiss Association of Israeli Municipalities) in exchange with other religious communities and the authorities.

Please note the detailed information on the specific Migwan implementation of the legally binding protection concept (https://www.migwan.ch/news/schutzkonzept/), which has proven itself in practice. The representations of the umbrella organizations and the municipal board have made a personal commitment to the Swiss Federal Council to comply with the requirements. We count on your supportive responsibility for compliance with the regulations.

The regular general assembly will take place on August 26, 2020 (postponement of the date originally planned for May), and the provisional agenda was sent out to members. The official invitation with the final agenda and other documents will be sent to Migwan members before the meeting. Please also mark your calendars for the second general meeting on December 2, 2020, which will focus on the outlook for activities in 2021.

The high holidays are already in the spotlight. The preparatory work for this is in full swing. We are currently also clarifying the appropriate organizational measures to make the implementation “Corona-compatible” for a large number of participants. You will receive detailed information about this at the end of August. In addition, the members will again receive a detailed letter in which we will inform you about this year’s “wish list” projects for the future of Migwan.

Kind regards

Peter Jossi

Migwan President

Co-President PLJS (Plattform der Liberalen Juden der Schweiz PLJS)
